For With In


Live type, data-awareness, animation and user interaction are just a few of the reasons why the web browser has become a satisfying place to generate graphic design — both experienced in and outside the browser. This collection of formal experiments and conversations explore the role of the browser as another possible tool for designers. The website and print-on-demand pocket-sized book are made from the same content, the book treated as one size within a multi-width design logic. The book prioritizes reading and documentation, the website is easy to access and friendly on all devices (until it breaks).
