In late 2014, we started to drawing / tracing logos, symbols and graphic interfaces of our common portable devices. The following selection is about five years-long practice. Has begun as a pictogram-based research, evolved and melted in a wide-spread GUI territories: a portion of space understood like an expressive element. PATCH is also the way to turn our notes into graphic forms
ALWAYS REMEMBER TO SPREAD A GOOD KARMA is the second motto we used and it is currently in use as signature in our e-mail letters. Motto and statements have become a training to compose mini-sentence as intents. Like a daily tweet. Crudostudio's practice has begun visualizing those emergencies, those concepts returned in graphic forms.
NO POST POST WAVE has been the first statement we used as motto since we start working as crudostudio. The phrase is a reasoning around the overused "post" as preposition referred to subsequent to and after, focused especially on the notion (understanding and interpretation) of post-modernism. Wave is related to the music and avant-garde art scene in mid-1970s. Wave is also a wavy motion, and a metaphor of a surf practice on the web. Furthermore, wave is about signals and physics, about quasi-randomness and temporariness.
We are currently playing with that. Phrases and words are notes. Hashtags are a memo to set a temporary marker around a concept.
Trying to mark a trajectory, a path into a map. We design around concepts. Concepts are like small pills, small philosophies. To get more about this see also our PROJECT 091: DENSITY GRADIENT: A REPORT ON DOCUMENTATION
