A collection of accidents is an attempt by Dries Wiewauters to reveal some of the small coincidences that occur during the design process, but end up leaving a strong influence on the finished product. What triggers these moments? What is their origin? The presentation will highlight some past and forthcoming projects, relating them to each other and to prior influences. It will try to expose all the elements of a project that remain hidden within the finished design.

Invited to design the second set of the embedded typeface for SALT’s identity, Dries Wiewauters is a graphic designer who also happens to be an avid type designer.
