BASICS DESIGN 01: FORMAT | TWO FL@33 PROJECTS
The very first book in this now well-established series – translated into many languages – features FL@33's Trans-form magazine and the website agatheHD.com.
|pp.62–63| Trans-form | Imposition and multiple stock | Scale | Client: Self-initiated project by FL@33 | Design: FL@33 | Process: Four-colour litho oversized loose-leaf journal (((and stapled))) | Trans-form magazine | For a publication containing images of cranes on the skyline, FL@33 chose an oversized, loose-leaf oversized magazine format. The format selection marries with the oversized scale of the machinery depicted in the photographs.
|pp.180–181| agatheHD.com | Film and moving image | Websites and hand-helds | Client: AgatheHD | Design: FL@33 | Process: Flash (((and mostly html))) website made to look like the early Macintosh operating system | AgatheHD | The appropriation and adaptation of other objects is nothing new. For her website, Agathe Jacquillat took the appearance of the Macintosh operating system as her inspiration and used it as the basis of her design. When viewed on a Macintosh, this creates a 'screen' within the screen. The appropriation of the visual appearance of software is also used elsewhere in the site; the portfolio section, for instance, is designed to look like the layers palette in Photoshop. | agatheHD.com
