FVS Weekly Nr. 41

Dear Flexible Systems Designers,

I hope you had a nice weekend. In Hamburg, Germany, where I am based, it is still summer. Long days with blue sky and temperatures around 30 degrees Celsius. Knowing that soon temperatures will drop and days will get shorter, I am enjoying this time of year and the energy that I get from the sun.

Enough chit-chat. I have three pieces of news to share with you today.

  1. There is a date for a Flipped Classroom Session with my Super Supporters. The 15th of September at 3 pm CEST. Yes, this Friday! I will send you the Zoom link through the Patreon email.
  2. I published a new lesson on the Modular Type Course. In the last lesson, I showed you grids that are built by the repetition of triangles or squares of the same size. In this lesson, I will show you a grid that works with modules of different sizes to obtain column and row gaps. I will also show you how diagonals need optical corrections in a rectangle grid to appear of similar weight. You can access the new lesson here: https://flexiblevisualsystems.info/courses/modular-type/thegridofnext/
  3. The third piece of news is actually a question. On which course should I work next? You can either pick a subject from the book Flexible Visual Systems or have a look at the diagram of the curriculum at the bottom of this page: https://flexiblevisualsystems.info/courses/

Have a great week!

P.S.: As you know I have a Pinterest (https://www.pinterest.co.uk/mrmartinlorenz/) and a Tumblr (https://involvingsystems.tumblr.com/) where I collect examples for great flexible visual systems, but as Pinterest and Tumblr seem to be a bit old fashioned I am thinking about collecting inspiration at a different platform, like Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/flexiblevisualsystems/). What is your daily go-to place for inspiration? Where would I reach you best?
