Novum World of Graphic Design 
novum 04.19



The purist creations of nomo creative (不毛) from Taiwan are ultra-modern, yet their cultural heritage is always detectable within them. Maintaining this balance is important for these unusual designers. Behind all of the sensitive, purist and very elegant solutions from the design studio (不毛) nomo creative is the premise that you always have to keep the balance between commercial, artistic and cultural values.

You can find an inspiring article about their work in novum 04.19

成立自 1924 年以來 Novum World of Graphic Design 被認為是全球領先且最具影響力的設計雜誌之一。當時的社會還沒有抗生素、沒有石英錶,在德國還沒有柏油馬路,連交通號誌也沒有。九十多年後的今天,novum 依舊是世界級的設計雜誌,傳承設計雜誌的經典作品。

來自台灣的不毛 (nomo creative) 作品極為現代與純粹,但仍能感受到自身的文化底蘊。在設計作品中保持平衡對這群不凡的設計師們來說相當重要,在細膩、簡約、優雅的設計成果背後,不毛 (nomo creative) 始終能在商業、藝術、文化價值之間取得平衡。

novum 04.19 刊載了一篇能夠啟發你靈感的專欄,紀錄關於不毛 (nomo creative) 的作品與理念。

Diversity of Graphic Design

平面設計的形狀

從一間小吃店的名片、招牌、菜單,聆聽一張專輯、閱讀一本書、看一場電影,看一場演唱會、參觀一間博物館,所有所有生活裡會接觸到的,都是平面設計會應用到的範圍。

此次展覽邀請40餘位台灣很棒的平面設計師,展品小從名片,大到海報的應用,讓大家看見在不同大小的載體裡,平面所釋放的魅力,而形狀,不僅僅是最後完成品的樣貌,這個形狀,可能是設計師和客戶一起捏出來的,作品想要乘載的樣貌。

因為「眼界」是學習設計裡很重要的一件事,而平面設計的魅力,不僅僅只是在網路上看到圖片而已,看到實體的應用上,紙張的挑選、印刷的加工,字裡行間保持著適當的距離,希望大家都可以來現場看到平面設計的魅力。

Type Hybrid
Typography in Multilingual Design

Increasingly globalised, the world is looking for a new-era language that can unite and identify with multiple cultures at once.
This does not only come as a verbal challenge, but an intellectual one for designers to understand foreign values and communication systems to create an effective discourse.
Some would dare the challenge to make perfect a multilingual setting, harmonising unique writing systems and cultural references to engage a global audience.
