Limited Language

Writers Monika Parrinder and Colin Davies of Limited Language approached me to co-design their compilation of articles. The concept of Limited Language is to use the web as a platform for generating writing about visual communication. In "Limited Language: Rewriting Design: Responding to a feedback culture", the authors examine the relationship between traditional printed formats (the book) and new digital ones (blogging) reflecting how hybrid media forms are transforming design. The publication creates an alternative and innovative writing space, giving the reader the reflective distance which can be offered only by a book. Each of its sub-sections comprises an article from the website, followed by a reflection/response to the topic by the responses raised on limitedlanguage.org, while rich visual imagery in colour illustrates each article/response.
