The Nest 2011 series entitled Comfort Zone & Disillusion is compiled within the box-set, containing the 4 publications plus a textual compendium — in collaboration with the Royal College of Art’s Critical Writing in Art and Design course — which deepens this year’s theme using the artists variables and beyond. The Nest 2011 “unsolicited advisers” are DIY event stylists HeyHeyHey, surreal architect Willem Claassen, hedonistic ecologist Nacho Cabonell and bottom-up urban-carthographer Jozua Zaagman.
The Nest series of 2011 is a follow up of the earlier series from 2010. Trying to keep a strong visual link with the earlier booklets we wanted to evolve their qualities into a new series. The booklets are based on a 8 page cover that is folded to the outside instead to the inside. The outer flap is slanted cut, resulting in two colour surfaces and scattered typography. This factor changes in colour and position during the series. The inside attempts a nice mixture of full colour and duotonal pages. The work of the specific artist is enhanced by the text from different authors and a specific chosen font type. The ongoing series 'Nest', spotlights emerging talent in art and design. Every publication represents one artist, that is also featured in an exhibition at the Onomatopee project space.
