↑ The dancing Oo is one key aspect of it, which triggered the spelling out of the name from… Overgaden to O-Overgaden passing by (O-O)vergaden... When doing so, we explored various ways of vocalizing the ‘O’ sound in written form, framing it with punctuation, approaching the letter o as if it were an open mouth, and playing with silence and duration, scattering and echo. The identity is based around the font family Glossy Magazine by Bold Decisions.

↑ From order to disorder, grid and shapes. The glyphs of O—Overgaden make up the backbone of the visual language and follow the order of the dancing ‘O’. As a way of expressing graphically the relation to an exhibition space, the punctuation codes for dialog and sounds resonate playfully with their artistic context. Posters and vinyl stickers are designed for every show of O—Overgaden. (Photography by Christian Brems & Mikkel Kaldal)

2020 In search of the Pluriverse, Het Nieuwe Instituut, identity and web cover design.

In search of the Pluriverse tunes into different places in and around Europe to learn from local initiatives how design can contribute to cultivating futures that have a future. Identity system translates those places weather conditions into typographic constellations. These likeable yet abstract narratives form the basis of the graphic layer.

↑ Designed chart overview connecting real live weather data and atmospheric values input transform into typographic and graphic features output. Each of the columns In search of the Pluriverse website is responding to a synchronized forecast feed of the five different locations: Istanbul, Berlin, Asturias, Isle of Mull and Casablanca. Depending which temperature, wind force, rain, snow, mist, day or night and cloud situation, the typography will behave differently. Miguelito variable font in use. A personal and shaky variable typeface project; a twisted Arial Narrow modified and hacked version.
