Didactics by Sonnenzimmer
By pairing our two out-of-print publications, Warp and Weft: Poster Construction by Sonnenzimmer (2012) and Formal Additive Programs (2010), we hope to open a window into our creative process, while expanding the canon of compositional practice related to both art and design. With this new iteration, we continue to contend with the duality of improvisation and formulated outcomes, while striving for the poetic and pragmatic in our approach to the visual field. While the first part of the book focuses on past poster work with a pragmatic and in-depth project break down (clients include the National, the Books, Mouse on Mars, etc), the second, Formal Additive Programs, aims to make a case for composing images through concise programs that embrace conscious flow. Published in collaboration with The Green Lantern Press.
