Slanted in L.A.: Jens Gehlhaar

In a town like L.A. and on a production like Slanted’s, which brings together the material for a magazine, not everything has to work out. Often, the best things happen when they’re not planned, just as they did when we went to this gleaming city in fall 2019. We were happy to meet the luminaries from the local creative scene and we are thrilled to share our inspiring encounters with you. Jens Gehlhaar, born and raised in Germany, is a commercial artist living in Los Angeles who works in film, design… weiterlesen

Re:Post

Re:Post shows visualizations of the basics class of Visual Communication at the Berlin University of the Arts, which demonstrate a digital dialogue between text and image. A text is posted by each student in a specified order, which refers formally or in terms of content to the preceding one: a chain of quotations is created, the components of which are visualized by the class. The project accompanied the entire online summer semester 2020 and thus contributes to a constant exchange between the… weiterlesen

In this way, this typographic palette is a gateway to a better understanding… weiterlesen

The Troublemakers reject the idea that design is an all-powerful, problem-solving discipline… weiterlesen

To mark a decade of publishing SAND, the editors are calling 2020 their „year of archaeology“ and have filled SAND Issue 21 with a mix of new discoveries and excavated favorites. And in the midst of a pandemic, they have gotten to know the pieces even more intimately, seeing them in a surreal light they could not have imagined when they began this issue. Archaeology is the study of context. It’s not just about digging up and admiring an elegant sculpture, but about reimagining the vanished context it… weiterlesen
