Repetition. Continuation. Discovery is an experimental and interactive editorial design series.
Objective: to encourage and inspire young designers to choose creative work tools for their expression in design. To cultivate the development of their unique style, and formation of their personal creative process.
A Series of printed editions for young designers has been created, to contribute to the creation of their visual style and technique. The work consists of publications split into three categories – informative, involvement, and creative, with the titles – “Repetition”, “Continuation”, and “Discovery”. The content of these publications provides an insight into the graphic designer’s process of creating visual materials, as well as is an invitation and encouragement to experiment creatively.
Problem: The process of creating a visual design requires a wide variety of visual solutions, according to the purpose for which the graphic design is created. Thanks to the internet network, various sites, modernized computer programs, and digital tools, a designer does not need to create all the visual content himself. It is often observed in the work of a designer that a great deal of trust is placed in the possibilities provided by the digital world, and with less and less manual and tactile operations with analogous materials and tools. Examples such as creation tools, effect galleries, geometric stencils, visual repositories, and many other resources for creating graphic and visual content are easily and quickly accessible. Therefore self-created tools for creating visual content are being forgotten and becoming more unpopular.
The content of this editorial series summarizes the methods of creating the visual design, which is directly related to its creator’s personal experience at The Art Academy of Latvia and provides an insight into the student design process.
Philosophy: The guiding principle and philosophy for creating this design publication comes from the Latin wisdom “Omnia mea mecum porto”, which in translation means that “everything I have I carry with me”. This clearly states that our greatest human wealth is in what we think and do, what we create with our own hands, and what cannot be taken away from us.
