iiii Magazine is an independent arts and culture publication, based in London and Manchester. Combining a self-aware sense of humour, with a love of expansive cultural ephemera - iiii sets no limit on subject, matter or form, publishing a range of content from incisive criticism, personal essays and memories, humour pieces and odes to oddities. All connected by a passion for language and bold singular voices.
Starting from a series of short texts we had requested from iiii, exploring the experience of navigating language on the web, the design interpreted a graphological approach described by iiii where 'tiny things can be portals, emotional resonance can be found in simple grammar'.
Responding to this question of, what would a 'graphological' website look and act like, the design & identity references the way in which we (as users) interact, engage and read content online. Examining the characteristics of type, code and interaction on the web - click, hover, meta-tags, transitioning, reading, scrolling, wireframes etc. the aesthetics and interaction of the site attempts to subvert, reveal and highlight these characteristics, in order to take on the witty intellectualism and self mockery of iiii.
