folio is a newspaper focusing on design issues, this is the first edition – folio is built by design students for design students. the purpose of this project was to use only two colours other than black. the pages are neither sowed nor stapled so that the reader may manipulate the object freely and use it at will.
folio has an additional diagram design to work as a poster that illustrates Hofmann’s relation to swiss design.
main theme – modernism and the swiss style, focusing on “a new design” and “the influences of the Basel School”. after careful selection, we have assembled a series of texts in a sequence that highlights the key issues of the subject, starting from the basel school and finishing with Armin Hofmann.
