Just came across this awesome project whilst researching for a publishing project I am working on: Dear Lulu. It looks at the ready made publishing industry and how it can be played with and tested to create graphics a narrative on the platform.
I've been delving into contempory graphic design a little more and. have been coming up against people like Metahaven a bunch.
These guys are super interesting, and their work spans many mediums, from video to publication and image.
