Info is a publication series and tool for research groups. It enables them to work together on a topic, to arrange source material associatively and to layout generatively in various formats. The resulting series is a mixture of a collective essay and material collection.

Basic idea of ​​the design was to automate repetitive activities in the design process and to provide the researchers with an easy-to-use tool. Therefore the projects’ backend generates various HTML- and PDF-versions based on XML data. The script-based approach was consciously exhibited in the layout-design – and contrarily to the series name, not being hidden. Explanatory texts are printed in full column width.

Realised in a cooperation between Chair for Wissenschaftsforschung, ETH Zurich and the Department for Visual Communication, ZHdK.

Hybrid platform for the simplified publication of essays written at the D-GESS Department of ETH Zurich.

Particular attention was paid to the tooling character, the design is based on a predefined system, the realization is managed by the backend. Further information:
