Dot Dot Dot was one of the inspirations for some of my non-client, self-published work. For example, much of Playground Magazine (conceived and edited by Carianne Whitworth, 2009 – 2011) was influenced by the expanded design principles we had seen in DDD. Many things made DDD special: its non-fussy but always interesting graphic aesthetic, its collaborations, its content, its readability and humour, to name only a few elements. In 2007 came issue 11 and the birth of Mitim, an ever-changing, evolving typeface designed specifically for DDD, each iteration responding to the needs of the new issue. Mitim exposed the long and careful processes through which design can mature and develop whilst still belonging to (and feeling a part of) it's previous incarnations. This laying bare of an on-going editing process was a radical motivation for me to think of design as a time based medium, where even type set in stone shifts.
