Following in the footsteps of local design surveys like Swiss Graphic Design and Narita Inspected, North by North explores the exceptional visual language of Nordic design. With more than 80 contributors from Norway, Iceland, Denmark, Finland and Sweden (including Kim Hiorthoy, Sweden, Acne and Ekhorn Forss), the huge variety of spreads, covers, layouts, logos, scribbles, posters, flyers, advertising and web designs is structured by aesthetic rather than country or designer: There is an unashamed love for local and natural structures, a distinctly warm, muted colour scheme, the strong 70s influence (especially prevalent in Sweden) and an obsession with abstraction and repetitive patterns. Last but not least North by North is a rich trove of illustrations with a high proportion of female participants, comprising almost half of the entries in this book. North by North includes prefaces by Thomas Hilland, Goddur and K10K as well as interviews with selected design studios.
