… invited Barry Deck while at the board of Grafill Oslo. In addition to the lecture in Oslo and Bergen we initiated a lecture in Stockholm in collaboration with Cap&Design, SGD and Fontshop Sweden. In the aftermath an interview with Barry Deck was the cover story for Cap&Design with the legendary capture: “Designers hinner inte med sex”.
One side designed by Halvor Bodin (Megafon) and other side designed by Christian Leborg (EGG). Both sides have the same information but as an experiment in readability and to pinpoint the theme of the lecture and the following debate we wanted to do two different designs to juxtapose different design languages. In addition it was to meet the critique we got from Grafill-members for the “unreadable” invitations sent out from the Oslo group. Funny enough this invitation got even more negative reactions. I could hardly believe it…
