INDEX is a print publication made by a continual remix from a shared repository of writing, photography, and drawings— our own and from the public domain.

INDEX started in 2020 during lockdown as a collaboration across three states and two time zones. Our process encourages chance operations; each designer is free to modify and reuse elements from each other’s work. After three consecutive edits, the result is published via print-on-demand, inviting imperfections and variations in the final copies.

In each issue, we expand upon a common set of visual techniques to communicate and explore how much is designed, including history and place. And how we are now together unpacking the sedimentary layers, excavating bias, then dismantling, mocking, remixing, recasting, reclaiming. The International Style as a carrier wave to redeliver historical oppression as a mirror. Mangling modernism. Free improvisation and cut-up. Détournement and dérive. Experimental publishing. Design as therapy. Design practice as acts of reclamation.

Issue #2 ‘Free’ explores what we observe as enabling, inhibiting, using, and defining the idea of ‘free’ and related qualities of living today. We address the concept of freedom as a brand— for those with immigrant backgrounds and for those living and working within it.
