Servus D*sign Week

in conversation with SOY BOT and Juan Linares

In conversation with SOYBOT about the Political Posters Club (PPC) and Juan Linares, designer and developer of the d*sign week graphic identity and website. About design tools appropriation, activism, big tech, disruptive design and playful aesthetics.

SOYBOT is a Vienna-based Micro Publishing Collective and Riso Printing Studio. We share an affinity to graphics, illustration and hardware. We occupy ourselves with elementary topics such as health, exorcism, UFOs, poems, prophecies, japan, implants and reptiles.

Juan Linares
Juan Linares is a visual artist with a strong interest in graphic design and web development. His practice revolves around the influence of digital tools on the construction of our shared imaginaries, and the potential of image-making to disrupt and construct potentially more desirable shared futures. He explores this influence through the use of graphic design, websites and installations.
