Åbäke

Guest posted by Simon Elvins,

Åbäke is a design studio based in London, although they also co-edited and designed the magazine Sexymachinery, co-direct a clothing and record label Kitsuné, run a publishing house Dent-De-Leone and I’m sure a lot else on top and in between this. This in-betweenness seems central to their work, embracing the collaborative aspect it allows and they are often involved in the work they design. Recently they’ve worked with Hussein Chalayan, Serpentine Gallery, Francis Upritchard (pictured) and continue to expand their ‘Slow Alphabet’, a font in which each character is released via a different publication over a number of years.
