What is now known as "tactile design" is coming increasingly into vogue as designers grow disenchanted with what they perceive as the soul-lessness of digital techniques and feel a need to be more involved with their material, more hands-on. We have gathered designers who came to the concept of tactile design after having started out in the digital field, to demonstrate how tactile illustrations jumps off pages, billboards and screens.

Tactile Illustration Special

The whole world (of design) in your hands

Tactile design, apart from that made specifically to aid the blind, is essentially hand-crafted work that is then photographed and used for advertising campaigns, identity systems or illustration. The hands-on aspect is increasingly appealing to designers tired of relying on their computers.

As with craft design itself, tactile slows down the whole creative process and seems to make a more immediate emotional impact, with its inevitable small imperfections lending it a human touch. We interview, and show the work of 8 leading "touchy-feely" designers!

How to channel your creative energies?

Bumpers, promos, idents, teasers... the world's TV stations are in a fierce battle for your subconscious mind now that multi-channel satellite and cable delivery systems — and zapping through them with the remote control — have become the norm. This presents designers with an enormous opportunity — and a stiff challenge.

If it grabs attention, anything goes. See what the experts have to say on the subject – and view some of the solutions they have come up with.

Type Casting: Underware

A German, a Dutchman and a Finn were so crazy about type that they got together to set up their own foundry. Now they not only turn out some fantastic fonts, but hold workshops for like-minded enthusiasts who may want to follow their example.

“I have a system. I only use 10 colours: five base colours (yellow, white, blue, pink, mint), then five stripe colors (black, navy, red, orange, magenta). From playing around with this palette, I have come up with more than 25 colour combinations that I frequently use.”

“The best part of doing things like this is working with a lot of people, something that’s important as a way of producing things. You may not use print-making, but new solutions to print mean doing it with other people.”

Scheltens & Abbenes – New Website – Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Design by Bas Koopman and coded by Thijs Gadiot and Martijn Eerens, please checkout the brand-new website of photographer/artist Scheltens & Abbenes. Maurice Scheltens and Liesbeth Abbenes are the sum total of a still-life photographer and the creative craftsmanship of an artist. Technical perfection added to individual handicraft, strong pictorial clarity in addition to tailor-made settings. They experiment with converting spatial dimensions into flat surfaces and explore intensively photography’s potential for creating illusion. Essential to their work is the laboratory process in the studio where they construct their settings with an attitude of conceptualization and solution-led thinking, regardless of whether they are editing or tackling commissioned or independent artistic work.

“It’s important to decide on a colour palette that can stand through time, it must never feel as if it’s outdated and it must survive through new trends. The colours chosen for a brand identity don’t necessarily have to appear on every piece; it’s important to choose where the colours will be applied.”
