Slanted #40—Experimental Type deals with experimental design strategies in typography and graphic design. This issue presents projects incorporating the accident into the design process, works based on mistakes and inaccuracy, fonts that derive from a concept or a system—in the end work that experiments or goes unconventional ways in design. This issue showcases cutting edge approaches as well as new experimental procedures, from processing to ai-generated typefaces or variable fonts.

Graphic designers, illustrators, artists—you’re very welcome to submit your artwork with a statement/quote that explains your work. Journalists, authors, or poets, we would be very happy if you’d contact us by email and talk with us about your text submission. Text contributions are highly appreciated!

Submissions can be uploaded until March 30th, 2022 (the issue will be published in October 2022).

We will curate and review all contributions and get in touch with you afterwards, if your work is selected. Once the issue has been published, you can order a free copy.
