Our CD Dan Capstick speaks about Design & Time
Last night, Tuesday 1st December, we were invited to take part in Eye Magazine’s final Type Tuesday of 2015 at St.Brides Library.
The theme was Design and Time, with proceeds going to the St. Brides foundation. Our Creative Director Dan Capstick spoke on behalf of DixonBaxi, followed by Kuchar Swara – Founder of Sekford, and ending with a Q&A where Simon Dixon, Kuchar and Dan discussed the merits of fixed products vs working across platforms, where the design changes over time.
‘It was interesting to compare and contrast two very different design disciplines. Both of which showed an ambition to push the craft to the limit. We could also quite clearly see the similarities in designing over time – incorporating rhythm, pace, motion – and that of editorial which also strives to achieve much the same rhythms and pace over a page.’ – Dan Capstick
Eye magazine were selling a number of back issues at the event including Eye #70 an issue with an article ‘The power of two” from 2008 – back when DixonBaxi was just Aporva Baxi and Simon Dixon.
…now it’s the power of 25! Thanks to Eye Magazine for a great evening.
