Border designs

25Feb09

“Faber also commissioned the super talented Canadian typographer Marian Bantjes to create four designs used as templates for the desired look & feel of the borders styles of each of the different genres offered by the imprint. Each of her design routes then needed to be abstracted, decomposed/split into smaller elements & shapes, parametrized and generally reverse engineered conceptually. The shapes would then become micro templates, or rather, form a shape vocabulary for the complex borders. Only once I understood all the rules and nature of the design elements used on all levels, I could start building a generative solution which would introduce variations at certain points of the design process, manage and judge them automatically.”
