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.

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.

"It is essential to experiment with printing processes ‒ and even create new ones, with different and unexpected materials. Try to use something cheap that nobody would ever think of. That can overcame any limitation and even inspire new ideas."

Most fascinating about Steffen Knoell’s works is that it can be seen even if only a very few elements are used. Otherwise it could end up as a very overwhelmed layout.

"I believe strongly that designers have a responsibility to embrace a smart, sustainable, and responsible approach to our printed pieces. We must educate ourselves about these processes and then, in turn, educate our clients. This starts with economical and efficient use of materials in our designs."
