Mapping Residencies #1


Mapping residencies is a semiannual magazine about

contemporary art and artists' residencies all over the world.

We were asked to design the magazine's identity and layout based

on the concept of the artists' expression inside contemporary

society, and how residencies help to spread it.

The visual identity is based on the concept of the several connections between

the artist, the artistic residencies, and the city and countries where they act.

The final result is a dynamic logo that evolves inside the publication,

being a milestone that helps readers to find information.

Finally, we came up with a strong, rational graphic proposal broken

by intentional mistakes, where elements are fixed in a strong white space,

as a visual metaphor of the blank space used in art.

Here you can appreciate how both characteristics live together in the same composition, and how, thanks to the generated errors the layout has irrational interventions that break the rules of composition.

Each issue will have a colour palette based on two colours.

The first one is about New York and Long Island.

The content talks about artists' experiences inside a residence

and what the final result was.
