Abstract [en]

The right touch is a project investigating the necessity of the graphic designer in relation to prose text.

The project is partly theoretical and partly practical. A series of interviews with graphic designers, publishers and writers has been conducted to discuss the relationship between content and form in prose. In addition to these interviews, I have done theoretical research on the historical, political and economical context of the designed prose. Based on the findings during the theoretical research, a series of practical experiments was also executed. This project has had several outcomes but one of the more noteworthy is two methods for challenging the references in the act of designing prose (choosing a typeface, for example) using algorithms. All discussions, research and experiments have been recorded and evaluated and I consider the working process a part of the final result.
