“The ultimate goal of any creative project is construction! We must all return to craftsmanship because there is no such thing as professional art. There is no essential difference between the artist and the craftsman. Let us wish, conceive and create the new constructs of the future, that will embrace all in one single form.”
Walter is a quarterly magazine limited to 3,852 copies (1883 + 1969, dates of birth and death of Walter Gropius). The texts are in English and French.
Walter is not another graphic design magazine, or just another design magazine; Walter looks at creativity, at aesthetic and functional research, regardless of time and place.
Nevertheless Walter Magazine is not the printed replica of my blog, it is an improved and expanded version of the online content. I will share a closer look on projects I love and my interviews with Singapour designers and Piers Faccini, a complete artist whose music and pictural art move me deeply.
Most of all I would love to see this graphic design magazine in the hands of everyone because graphic design and creation are everywhere: in a film opening title, a cup of coffee, a product you wish to purchase or direction signs.
We live in a dematerialized era: books, music, everything is dematerialized! Still vinyls are more and more sold and customers want to know where their coffee is coming from and who roasted it. We want authentic, tactile and visible things.
