Trend: Aquatic Manipulations

Typographic manipulations will always be current. Whether they’re spliced to create depth, formulate shapes or devise witty statements, language is a consistent filler when it comes to graphic design. Add a touch of surrealism and you have fantastic fluid nonsensical works of art. Anna Jordan’s in depth study of Jorge Luis Borges’s literary poems and writings serve as the baseline inspiration for this visual trend. Borges’ vast array of work became known for it’s “irreality” and existentialist undertones during the late 1880’s and Jordan reinterprets this using typographic jigsaw puzzles that are crisp, fluid and smudged. Using a similarly aquatic technique, Triboro Design, the combined genius of husband and wife, David Heasty and Stefanie Weigler, also incorporate surrealist themes. Combining crisp edges with nature-inspired textures is a true reminder that everything’s cyclical.
