Identity

Nov/Dec 2017

Order Magazine

Identical identities are rare – and this is as it should be. Whether it is a person, a brand or a product, their identity is a question of distinctiveness, a high degree of recognisability and a sense of connection with the human or object opposite. We explore how identities are shaped today.

Anniversary contributions

60 Years of form
Revisiting the Past

2017 marks the 60th anniversary of form, a milestone that has prompted us to stop and take stock. In particular, we will be revisiting a specific article, reader’s letter, image, cover, etc. from each of the magazine’s six decades to date.

Back in 2013, we celebrated the 250th issue of form with a relaunched magazine in which we explored the future of design as a discipline, then, in form 251, posed the question “Designer Quo Vadis?”. In 2017, we are still asking such questions.

Although not yet scientifically verified, the term anthropocene has been circulating for some time now. What this means is that man has altered the surface of the earth to such an extent that he is now the key influential factor on our planet.

Logo and typeface are vital in defining the identity of a company and ideally convey its values and how it sees itself. Consequently, every change to this has to happen with great sensitivity. Atelier Markgraph, located in Frankfurt/Main, has taken this step and is currently implementing its new corporate design.
