Together Lexane Rousseau and Eli Horn form Fivethousand Fingers, a Montreal-based studio who list concision as one of their core design principles. This certainly rings true when considering their new work for the Black Visual Archive (BVA), an organisation that celebrates and contextualises the work of African American artists.
It’s interesting to hear how the designers started with the way the BVA releases its critical writing and then added graphic flourishes to support that core function. They say: “The concept of the website was reduced to the essentials of its ‘archival’ form to best reflect the function of linear release and archiving of posts, and focused on implementing useful and beautiful typographic and textual details.”
