Act Natural, Paperwork, 2014
Design of PaperWork, Issue 2, Act Natural. PaperWork magazine focuses on providing an interdisciplinary platform for visual artists engaged with writing to publish and distribute their work, with an emphasis on challenging the form and function in print. Focusing on the nature of the magazine's risograph production method STSQ developed the logo based on the half tone dot, whilst considering the nature of print, overprint and misprint.
For Issue 2, Uncanny, STSQ together with designer Ross Bennett experimented with the distinction between the familiar, the uncertainty and the unknown. The content was layered, repeated and with slight shifts created a new experience of reading. As PaperWork celebrates the relationship between the spoken and written word the issue was designed so that the pages could stand on their own as performance sheets as well as a bound object.
