Futuress had the pleasure to re-publish some of the text from the past issue of A Line Which Forms a Volume! The publication is a critical reader and symposium of graphic design-led research that is edited, written, designed, and published by participants of the MA Graphic Media Design course at London College of Communication, U.K. Issue #4 approaches the topic of decoloniality and the constructed borders of the design canon. It asks: “What are the boundaries that graphic design exists within?” Dive into the conversation with Clara Balaguer, and learn why using open-source programs entails a privilege in Learning from the Vernacular by Rhys Atkinson.
