Stumbled upon afterimage the other day. It is a Berlin-based studio that focusses on creative technology and generative design. They do everything from motion design to generative art. Some great work on their page.

Another Berlin-based agency — onformative — have released a conceptual study about a generative AI tool to explore AI as a co-creater to support the daily craft. Just a study for now, but hopefully available soon!

Ain interesting read about the two camps of design criticism. Either overly appreciative or completely destructive. There’s no real helpful critique anymore. Constructive feedback is gold. But rare. I think we as CRU can also learn a take or two from this.

Freshly launched new type foundry. It’s DIA’s own type foundry. I am so jealous right now. :D
