Jörg Marx is a German freelance photographer, based in Bavaria, mainly working on landscape and nature photography.
For me photography is a way of coping with the world. While an image leaves a gap, a text always want to close it. In my photos I try to leave space for the Vanished, Lost & Hidden. I’m interested in memory and its localization in the landscape. I ask myself what the trees could bear witness to what we have long forgotten. And I wonder if a place is still the same place after one has made war or other terrible things there. All landscapes are contaminated with forgotten historical events.5 hearts
Font Atlas designed by Christian Schwartz, Susana Carvalho and Kai Bernau in 2012.
Atlas was originally designed as a corporate typeface for Munich Re, one of the world’s largest reinsurance companies. This typeface deliberately avoided contemporary trends in corporate type design in favor of the clear, optimistic tone of Dutch Modernism.
The client produces hundreds of publications, reports, and other documents each year.
They required a new typeface capable of maintaining clarity in often complicated typographical situations with a suitably well-considered range of weights. The new typeface also had to be economic in setting, saving space over the previous corporate face and saving significant amounts of paper in the process.6 hearts
Two debut singles in this selection. Fractions with fresh quality synths + vocals and Laura Doggett with a deep voice and good lyrics. Let the followers multiply.
Two veterans took care of Woven Ancestry. Composed by Max Cooper, remixed by Lusine. How the word ‘refined’ echoes in sound.
Hip hop analog electro jazz marvel duo from Norway: Wauwatosa. I will not be satisfied until I go to a live.
