Future on Instagram, episode 10

The curator of @tomorrow.type.today Timur Zima is here to once again share the accounts he saw while looking into the future of typography through Instagram

Killian Maguet from Brest (the one in Brittany!) realised that he wanted to do design while studying to be an artist at the art school called ESAC. That is where he mastered all the design tools, ranging from letterpress to 3D-modelling and coding, and he now uses those (usually, a few of them at the same time) in his projects for Paris-based Golgotha studio.


Giuseppe Tangaro took interest in graffiti and understood that he wanted to do letters for the rest of his life while he was still at school. Later, at the institute, he started studying lettering, calligraphy, and type design. Giuseppe lives in Milan (for the last three years) where he does logos, identities and creates custom typefaces, as well as explores the NFT market.


János Hunor Vári is a first year student at ÉCAL — where he ended up because he is certain that typography is the first design field to react to the changes going on in the world. Besides typography, János is into branding and book design, and starts each of his projects with a thorough elaboration of a future visual system.


After finishing her studies of communication design in Geneva, Amélie Gallay enrolled at ÉCAL, too. Most of her work is based on typography and ironic playing with historic contexts.


Anna Tuena was born and raised in the Alps, recently graduated from the art school in Zurich, and currently works at Offshore Studio. She prefers working on books and posters — and analysing how they communicate with the digital world and affect it.


First of all, good design begins with proper references; secondly, original aesthetics is nothing without competent technical execution, and thirdly, every detail has to be meaningful. Those are bullets from Antoine Brun’s personal manifesto, he came up with it while being an intern at Typofonderie and studying at the School of Decorative Arts, ENSAD.


Tallinn-based artist, designer and futurology teacher, Norman Orro is into chaotic systems and design beyond design-thinking framework. Norman says that he does his artistic and designer projects using the same tool set, because design only seems to be a clear system — while art imitates the lack of it, — in fact, they have an awful lot in common.
