Zine / reader designed to accompany the “Shared Histories” symposium held at Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2023. The zine’s concept circles around the idea of finding commonalities in a vast diaspora of artists, makers, and perspectives, and looks to celebrate differences while highlighting similarities. To center this idea, the design system of the zine and symposium relies on the many typographic variable axes of Google’s open-source “Roboto Mono,” with each passage, section, and contributor set in a wholly unique typogrpahic voice that comes from the same stem.
