Last year (2013) in May I had the chance to present this exciting project at Nissan Design Europe as part of the MA Textile Futures (now Material Futures) course. I wasn't able to upload it before because of the privacy agreement but finally here it is.
The name of the project was Emerging Cities / Emerging Trends and the idea was, as the name indicates, to explore the emerging behaviours and scenarios in cities that are now witnessing accelerated growth.
Fulfiling a personal fascination with spies I chose Moscow between three cities (Lagos, Nairobi and Moscow) and you can see the results here.
El año pasado (2013) en mayo tuve la oportunidad de presentar este interesante proyecto en las oficinas de Nissan Design Europe como parte del MA Textile Futures (ahora Material Futures). No podía publicarlo antes por motivos de privacidad pero finalmente acá está.
El nombre del proyecto era Emerging Cities / Emerging Trends (Ciudades emergentes / Tendencias Emergentes) y la idea era, tal como el nombre lo indica, explorar los patrones de comportamiento y contextos emergentes en ciudades que presencian un crecimiento acelerado.
Satisfaciendo una fascinación personal con los espías escogí Moscú entre tres ciudades (Lagos, Nairobi y Moscú) y los resultados los pueden ver acá.
I have received several requests to upload the timelines of my project. I developed these two timelines when I was mapping out the information at the beginning of the project.
There was so much information that I decided the only way I could understand it was to turn it into a timeline, then that timeline became two and that is how I was able to identify some common things across history that I wanted to use for the project. Please let me know if you have any comments or questions about them (also if you need them in higher resolution for your blog, projects or press purposes).
Feel free to use them and remember to credit them properly!
I am very happy to work with this amazing font for my new project.
Australis is a hybrid font that I wanted to try a while ago and the project I am currently working on for MA Textile Futures was the perfect opportunity to do it. I like its uniqueness and superb design details. It works amazingly in long written pieces and it is super flexible for on screen uses.
Thanks a lot to Daniel Hernández from Latinotype for their support and to Comunas Unidas for their constant -and kind- help and advice.
