Walking around the topic of decolonization in design, ALWFAV 4 takes the color green as a metaphor for ‘access’. The fourth issue applies the concept of dotted lines as its key visual element, which corresponds to the form of borders on the map, imagining the publication space as an embodied territory resisting the design canon.

The art direction and typesetting of the publication respond to the three thematic approaches, move, cross, and tilt, enriching the relative position between body text, footnotes, and images.

The statement and index are extended to the cover, rendering the content of the publication transparent.
In the ‘move’ section, all contents compose a fluid, moving stream. Images and footnotes are being pushed forward by justified columns.

In the ‘cross’ section, the left-aligned texts and inserted footnotes form an interleaved visual, emphasizing a dynamic sense of crossing.

In the ‘tilt’ section, footnotes and captions are rotated to alter the original axis of the reading direction.
