Call for Submissions: Slanted Magazine Experimental Type 3.0

Submissions are open until July 31st, 2024

Author: Lena Buhl

After the success of the first two editions, Experimental Type is now set to become a series of publications. Working in collaboration with students from FH Dortmund under the direction of Professor Lars Harmsen, the team is currently preparing the third edition. This call for entries aims to provide an opportunity for all interested parties to participate in this upcoming issue.

Experimental Type explores experimental design strategies within typography and graphic design. The publication features projects that integrate accidents into the design process, works that embrace mistakes and imprecision, and fonts that originate from a specific concept or system—ultimately showcasing designs that experiment or take unconventional paths. It presents cutting-edge approaches and new experimental techniques, ranging from processing to AI-generated typefaces and variable fonts.

Graphic designers, illustrators, journalists, authors, and artists are encouraged to submit their artwork along with a statement or quote explaining their work. Essays or articles are also very welcome, please submit your idea via email! Submissions are open until July 31st, 2024.

After the submission deadline, all contributions will be curated and reviewed. We will contact you if your work is selected for inclusion. The magazine is scheduled for publication in February 2025.
