Last week one of the biggest design talks – Typo London 2011 Places was storming the capital of England. With the most impressive speakers list – it was a total temptation that was difficult to resist. Unfortunately, due to last minute change of plans, I’ve managed to see only 1 speaker – Morag Myerscough, who was as always – brilliant!
Last evening, small Text gallery based in WC1 was completely packed with people who came to the opening of Imaginary Menageries exhibition, where 19 designers from all around the world were exhibiting their tongue-twisting interpretations. It was very sweet to to watch and listen to people trying to read the tongue twisters in perfection, not just in English, but in Russian, Spanish and other languages as well.

It is getting more and more difficult to define a concept of contemporary beauty. In urban society, where the hunt for perfection begins at an early age and modified ‘plastic beauties’ wave from the covers of glossy magazines, humanity’s struggle for perfection appears almost limitless.
This is my Contextual Report for my final year project. In this paper, I propose that there is no need to undergo expensive, psychologically and physically painful procedures in finding your perfect look. Essential parts of the human psyche – confidence and self-esteem – could be easily lifted and ‘healed’ not just by a few cuts and stitches made by the surgeon, but also by through various design contexts and practises.
