The Phaistos Project
Forty Five Symbols Publication #1

45SymbolsMag001

Handmade on a risograph: The first publication of the Phaistos Project introduces 6 selected projects and the framework/history of the initiative. The Phaistos Project is a collaborative exploration of visual language that unites international students, teachers, scholars, and ideas. Inspired by the cryptic yet powerful character of The Phaistos Disc, participants develop collections of 45 unique symbols to represent the essence of their identity, or the spirit of a culture that is relevant to them. Their mission is not to create additions to the endless repertoire of functional pictograms. Instead, they are driven by personal storytelling and creating ethnographic visual anecdotes that are subjective, stimulating and inviting.

Concept, editing and design in collaboration with Andreas Henrich und Olivier Arcioli.
