Erik Brandt, Ficciones Typografika, 641–643 (72”x36”).
“It’s a community of people who are — it sounds so corny — just
dreaming," says designer Erik Brandt of Ficciones Typografika, the international design poster show he's been curating on his Minneapolis garage for the past 15 months. "People experimenting and doing something idiosyncratic, for no
other reason than that they want to do it.” With no rules, no deadlines, and no pay, the project has become a vibrant playground for a range of design innovators from around the world, from legendary names (Ed Fella, Reza Abedini, Anthony Burrill) to new-generation innovators (Sang Mun, Felix Pfäffli, Janneke Meekes). Following up last summer's Eyeteeth interview with Brandt just after the project got started, here's my new feature on it for Medium's design site re:form. Enjoy!
