IDEA Issue 391
The first half of this feature presents the Phantom Spoon project, which introduces the phantom design projects of designers from around the world, each contributing with PR materials for exhibitions and events that were either canceled or postponed due to the pandemic. By presenting each graphic along with the circumstances in which the project was discontinued as well as the story of its production, a visual archive is created of this period of global lockdown, in which parallel forms of design expression were produced.
In the second half, we interviewed newspaper design departments from different countries about information graphics in the news media under the theme of “Data Journalism and Design”. This feature will consider data journalism and design. By paralleling the design expressions of different axes such as the reality that could have occurred and the one based on facts (what is believed to be), we will reflect on parallel design expressions in this time of crisis.
