Adam Rodgers & Stefan Endress Creative Directors
Design Systems and Aesthetics in the Modern Era
Technology, culture and art have smashed together, converging into what has recently been described as The Big Flat Now. In this current iteration of space and time, the boundaries between all things are shattered. Matter, both physical and digital are the building blocks from which we sculpt and mould new worlds.
To reflect this expression, International Magic engineered a complete digital design system for the renowned magazine and apparel brand 032c. The result is a raw, well considered brutalist platform with a highly flexible and recognisable visual aesthetic.
How do movements, concepts and ideologies from the physical and virtual environments influence the thinking and role of designers operating in digital spaces today? They explored the convergence of these ecosystems in this talk.
