DALCHODHA.COM 

(2021)

WEB DESIGN+CURATION
︎︎︎VIEW THE LIVE SITE !
Site curation and design for Dal Chodha: editor, writer and academic occupying the boundaries of the fashion realm.
On the home page, hand-picked sentences from his articles compose a surreal poem, minuscule images float above the words and distrub the reader, symbols spin endlessly, a hand slowly flicks through a magazine and a tiny ugly shoe flies across the screen. 👽️

WEB DESIGN
︎︎︎VIEW THE LIVE SITE
Founded in 2020 by Jane Howard and Dal Chodha, Archivist Addendum is a publishing project free from the confines of a bound periodical. Non-seasonal and multi-format, it occupies the nascent space between standardised fashion editorial and arcane academe.

OPEN EYES, OPEN HEART

(2020)


PUBLICATION
BUY ON TENDERBOOKS.COM
A book that I wrote and designed concerned with taste and the aesthetic flattening of the design world. Published by SOLD OUT, 2021.

In this book you’ll find a few techniques that I believe could help you, dear designer, to question and expand your sense of taste. Forget rules and habits, loosen up your ego, appreciate new things, be spontaneous and open your little six-column-grid heart. Why shake up your established, insta-popular 'good taste'? Because, if you haven’t noticed, everything looks the BLOODY SAME.
And not only this is boring and sad, it also sucks at a deep societal level, because our brain imitates images (WE BECOME WHAT WE SEE) and because people identify in different aesthetics, so if everything is the same it accounts for one type of viewer only. It’s a sneaky mechanism of control that makes us easy to manage; it erases the different, engenders division and unifies us in mediocrity. Find out more in this manual, which is YOURS so you should do what you wish with it.
It will attempt to open your eyes and heart and give you space to try out my techniques.
It’s not a precious object, so don’t feel precious with it: scribble it, dismantle it, intervene in the discourse, and don’t forget to question it all.

OSART GALLERY
(2021)


EXHIBITION IDENTITY DESIGN

A recently started collaboration with OSART, a contemporary art gallery in Milan. Here part of the identity assets developed for their current exhibition of Dan Halter’s work.
