Walking around the topic of decolonisation in design, ALWFAV 4 takes the colour green as a metaphor of ‘access’, which alludes to an unrestricted and flexible imagination of what the boundary of design could be and how we can make these borders accessible. The fourth issue applies the concept of dotted lines as its key visual element and metaphorical figure to interact with the contents within the publication. These dotted lines correspond 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 responds to the three thematic approaches, move, cross and tilt, enriching the relative position between body text, footnotes and images. (text sourced from: magmd.uk)
