Who is Futuress? Introducing our founding editors: Eliot Gisel, Madelaine Morley, and Nina Paim!

Eliot Gisel is a Swiss journalist, editor, and researcher exploring topics such as design education, dress culture, city politics, visual rhetorics of resistance, LGBTQIA+ activism, culture, and the politics of language. Madeleine Morley is a Berlin-based British writer and editor who combines the tools of journalism and archival research as she delves into histories of design, media, and feminism. Nina Paim is a Brazilian designer, researcher, curator, educator, and activist, whose work revolves around notions of directing, supporting, and collaborating. During the uncertain and unstable times of the first COVID-19 lockdown in Europe, these three came together to envision Futuress as a space for togetherness, generosity, resistance, growth, and social purpose. They jointly applied and received a Pro-Helvetia Grant, which allowed for the evolution of Futuress into a hybrid publishing and learning platform!
