Hello!

My name is Anders Tallvik, I’m a graphic designer and I especially enjoy working with printed matter, identities, and anything extra systematic.

NEXT 2015

As a selected member of the Design Lab practicum, I collaborated with four fellow designers on the design and production of the award-winning visual identity for NEXT, the annual thesis exhibition at the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design. I primarily worked within the realm of exhibition design.

Why I show this work
The success of the NEXT identity and exhibition is the fruit of devoted teamwork and I am forever proud to have been part of said team. I also enjoy working large both in scope and in scale.

I’m a fan of problem-solving both playfully and strategically.

Planet Forward

Planet Forward uses contemporary media to spark and lead conversations on the future of the planet, bringing students and sustainability leaders together in problem-solving dialogue. My visual identity update was my own initiative and grew from surveys and interviews with the staff.

Why I show this work
I'm thankful for the opportunity to initiate and implement an idea within a sometimes rigid university framework. I also love working with individuals from vastly different backgrounds and professions than my own.

Framework

The beginnings of an ongoing collaboration with the choreographic duo Framework Dancing Art; a boundary-breaking logo, a friendly tone, and a directionally interactive business card.

Why I show this work
Framework Dancing Art wanted a sophisticated but exciting logo that would communicate both their professionalism and though-provoking topics.
It was a great learning experience in how to listen closely to the client’s wants and needs.

I’m inspired by walks, skillful design, rulebreakers,
Scandinavian silence, American drive, jazz, food,
trees, the awareness that knowledge is endless.

On Randomness and Typography

In my thesis paper, I investigate the various effects randomness has on typography in the context of graphic design. Randomness, or chance, requires the designer to cede control over the type. Yet the designer makes crucial selections: which randomizing process is used, which resulting visual becomes part of the overall design, and how is it incorporated? This brings up an intriguing power play between randomness and control. Within this balancing act of giving up or maintaining control, surprising and exciting design solutions emerge.

My thesis included both a poster and a publication.

Why I show this work
The topic itself is a testament to my interest in type; both a respect for the rules surrounding it and a mind ready to explore unconventional visual possibilities. Gosh, I love typography.
