In order to clear up my work in progress with student projects and make space for the latest post-university projects (aka after assessment!) I am cleaning up the categories, but here are the CSM-specific categories just in case of need:
(and don’t forget to scroll down if you want to read through the development of a project from start to finish!)

The subject of the Luxembourgish language and it’s necessity as a spoken and taught official language is currently a very hot topic in Luxembourg, so there are a lot of articles appearing out of nowhere with different opinions and discussions.
I have been continuing to push the branding brief for Luxembourg/the Luxembourgish language, but I am still stuck for now, as I haven’t been able to find a solution to combine the three languages together in an easily readable way that relates to 7 to 77 year–old–people inside and outside Luxembourg, foreigners and residents, digital as well as print (yet). I also haven’t found the right typeface yet so I’m keeping Akkurat Pro as a placeholder for now, until I find a less German typeface.

Here are the directions that I have been working towards for now:

I want to somehow be able to show the transitions between the three languages to show the origins of Luxembourgish and help understand the history behind it as well as the language itself, while integrating the other official languages. Furthermore it would also be nice to include a way to ‘promote’ Luxembourg through it’s language to foreigners that don’t know much about Luxembourg by creating an awareness campaign with appropriate communication.

During the Easter break, the TSI group went to visit The Hague, Amsterdam, Antwerpen and Brussels to look at type, public lettering, old printed and calligraphied books and drink beer.

This is the A4 spread I made for the TSI book, more photos are going to follow.
It is a typographic response to everyone’s first reaction when a book page was turned.

Isolate one part of one letter of a specific font that you think tells the story of the font/ find the most specific characteristics.
