More About This Book

Silex,an open-minded assembly of Swiss designers,has quietl revived
the spirit of the traditional artists 'collective.Unimpressed by the com-
mercial renaissance of illustration,their intensive weekend workshops
serve as a cathartic outlet for their stranger,funnier and darker
talents.
M Way offers a diverse collection of 12 exercises,based on topics rang-
ing from Poetry to Nightmare.Here deceptivel simple tasks,reminis-
cent of primary school exercises like Chinese whispers,memory games
or free association,achieve unique,improvised results -simultaneous-
l accessible and subversive,simple and deepl textured they manage to
def and destroy stale design patterns.While the binding,too,reflects
the playful ethos of childhood doodles,M Way nevertheless remains
strictl structured by its choice of colours and paper.At each and ever
perusal the reader will discover new details in this very personal,varied
and likeable volume,stirring his own creativit and the irrepressible
urge to scribble.
