novum 10.20 »mobility«
Tourism, commuter traffic, leisure activities, business travel – few sectors have been so avidly talked about, fought over and sorely missed over past months as mobility, both private and public. For the first time society has asked itself: »What good is freedom when we can’t move around unhindered, plan trips and just generally be out and about living our lives?«
We took this opportunity to explore in this new issue not only design concepts for conventional means of transport such as planes, cars and bicycles, but also to interview studios and designers who are re-interpreting and re-designing the theme of mobility, and making it fit for the future.
In producing this cover we decided to do something we have been wanting to do for a long time – and, in cooperation with printers Stainer, we have printed this design in screenprint on a rough machine-grey card from Igepa. And the result is, we think, a wonderful contrast of glowing citron yellow and cool grey.
In this way the cover takes up visually the many differences, conflicts even, in themes that we are confronted with daily: proximity and distance, technical progress and a return to nature, tradition and innovation.
All this and more awaits in this issue of novum!
