This is an artistic research that examines the significance and understanding of the tactile aspects of graphic design. Tactility, in result, process and education, has largely been abandoned and undervalued during the digital revolution. New technologies have been developed, but meant for limited applications. Screen-based work is generic and represents the absence of tactility.

The aim for this project is to achieve a deeper understanding of the role tactility plays in printed graphic design today. When the practitioners’ tactile experience is no longer a part of the design process, which consequences will this have on printed matter in the future? Which potentials do tactile means and processes have to provide multiple layers of communication? The project seeks to find insight and awareness of the manual production process. The significance it has on the creative process, and the quality of the finished result. Ane´s aim is to contribute to the discussion about how graphic designers work, and how we want to work when performing printed matter.
