Paul Schmelzer on iteeth: “It’s a community of people who are — it sounds so corny — just dreaming,” says designer Erik Brandt of Ficciones Typografika, the international design poster show he’s been curating on his Minneapolis garage for the past 15 months. “People experimenting and doing something idiosyncratic, for no other reason than that they want to do it.” With no rules, no deadlines, and no pay, the project has become a vibrant playground for a range of design innovators from around the world, from legendary names (Ed Fella, Reza Abedini, Anthony Burrill) to new-generation innovators (Sang Mun, Felix Pfäffli, Janneke Meekes). Following up my interview with Brandt from last summer, here’s my new feature on it for Medium’s design site re:form.”
