Urs Lehni Switzerland
Urs Lehni runs the graphic design studio Lehni-Trueb with partner Lex Trueb. Besides working for clients, he often follows self-initiated projects, such as www.vectorama.org (with Jürg Lehni and Rafael Koch, 2000), and Rollo Press which he operates since 2008. In 2008 Lehni co-initiated Corner College a non-commercial project space focusing on quasi-academic happenings such as lectures, presentations, workshops and movie screenings.
Rollo Press is a publishing project founded by Urs Lehni in Zürich at the end of 2007, more or less accidentally after purchasing a risograph from Ebay. Since then, roughly 50 titles have been published under this imprint.
As an attempt to get away from the computer, this workshop is an exploration of ancient and modern printing techniques. We will create an editorial object with the maximum level of freedom while exploring the limitations of printing techniques.
After following a short introduction to the different techniques, groups of four participants each will find their themes for a publication that has to be reproduced with the given tools in a minimum of 25 copies.
Each group will be composed by the following roles: one editor, one designer and two printers. The printers will have to find available materials and techniques, the editor will have to gather and edit the content and the designer puts that together for the printers. Although each one in the team will be responsible for his or her area, everyone should help the others.
Any printing and binding technique is permitted as long as it allows reproduction – from wood printing on paper to clay engraving and screen printing, even a Riso printing machine might be available. The techniques might also be mixed for better results.
Your final goal is to publish a limited series of 25 editorial pieces that will be sold or given away at the end of this workshop. The theme is free but you'll be encouraged to find connexions with our environment or the other workshops happening at the same time.
Apartamento is a magazine about homes, living spaces and design solutions as opposed to houses, photo ops and design dictatorships. It features the homes and lives of creative people, both established and emerging, from all over the world. And it understands interior design as a means of personal expression, showing how people arrange their homes and the solutions they find to the same problems that everyone has. The magazine puts forward a fresh and simply crafted aesthetic. It cares about the way people live and their relationships to the places they live.https://www.apartamentomagazine.com/
