SLIP(2016)


In this project I wanted to use all my knowledge and experience in graphic design to produce physical objects. I have created a collection of modular ceramics based on the elements of my STRUCTURA typeface. The final outcome turned out to be multidisciplinary. It lies between typography and product design, digital technology and handicraft. From the conceptual point of view I explored the idea of "human error". Nowadays, when everything can be perfectly produced via a click of a mouse, the hand-made products have obtained the specific value of unique objects. Even the little faults inherent in such things have become the indexical signs of the human soul. The name of the collection — SLIP — combines in itself several meanings: a mistake, a sliding movement and the actual process of casting ceramics.

How is was designed



The process of making this project was long. It took me several weeks to work out the process of drying and baking poducts. There were 5 stages for the final production.














Stage 1. Flat Graphics


I experimented with flat graphics on a grid and created several “illustrations” which were later converted into 3d objects.



Stage 2. Creating of 3D shape in Cinema 4D







SLIP Logo



The logotype for ceramics is made out the same modules which were used for objects sketching. Logotype may change due to “human errors”









Packaging



Flat graphics is used in packaging. The image fit in the proportions of a box, so you can cleary understand what size and proportions is objecs inside
