TYPO POWER •  Slanted magazine : 2d3d. 4. - or what are these dimensions trying to tell us ?

The »2d3d. 4.« issue of Slanted magazine deals with the dimensional enhancement of linearity in spaces, and everything in between. Slanted, who are known for constantly challenging dimensional boundaries, have now challenged even more geographical boundaries – this issue presents work by Edhv (Eindhoven), Klein Dytham architecture (Tokyo), Pixelgarten (Frankfurt), Maxime Buechi (Lausanne), Ina Saltz (New York), Erwin Bauer (Vienna), Sangho Park (Stuttgart), to mention but a few.

The “Fontlabels, Fonts & Families”, “Fontnames Illustrated” and “Typolyrics” categories present contemporary fonts and designers from all over the world. There are interviews with Sabrina Tibourtine, Christoph Dunst, Sipho Mabona, Gemma O’Brien and David Carson. In addition to an article on the Letter Musuem in Berlin, there are countless  2d3d pieces by professionals and students (including Ebon Heath, Yulia Brodskaya, pleaseletmedesign, MWM Graphics).

Additional features include the “NeoDepth S8” font which was especially designed by Hubert Jocham and is available as a free download to readers, as well as the poster that the issue comes wrapped up in.

The magazine comes out quarterly and is distributed through www.slanted.de, Amazon and selected book stores.
