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!

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.

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.
