New tools for new design
Neue Tools für neue Gestaltung
How do tools influence design and the way we create? And how can we build new tools in order to create new design? This are the questions I try to answer with my bachelor thesis. In a experimental approach I created new tools. The experiments are summed up to insights in how these tools shape design. These insights then become a tool it self – awareness. I built 18 tools and I created posters, grids, websites, typography, graphics… Some tools are programmed, some are remixes (like a synthesizer I used to create graphics) and some are missused (snapchat for posters).
All that is published as a book – »New tools for new design« and all the tools and experiments are documented online: www.alex-roidl.de/newtools/
