This year’s AGI Open has the theme: ‘What. How. Why.’
There’s just over a week to go until this year’s AGI Open in Barcelona (3 > 4 October 2011), which has the theme: ‘What. How. Why.’ The line-up of international speakers contains many names that will be familiar to regular Eye readers. Marian Bantjes tops the (alphabetical) list – see our ‘Reputations’ interview in Eye 72, and our feature about her lavishly ornate book I Wonder in Eye 77.

Buzzwords and the inspiration of improv at the Brighton codefest
If you were to play buzz-word bingo at Brighton’s ‘Flash on the Beach’, the squares for ‘awesome’, ‘pumped’ and ‘stoked’ would fill up pretty quickly, writes John L. Walters. A wordcloud of all three days’ presentations would bloom with the same words, plus ‘HTML5’, ‘agile’, ‘responsive’, ‘Molehill’ and the inevitable ‘clients’, ‘schedules’ and ‘budgets’.

A closer look at some neglected rules for typographic design.
When we opened Taschen’s new English edition of Letter Fountain to photograph it for Ben Archer’s review in Eye 80, there was a slim implement (below) that I assumed had gone the way of composing sticks and Letraset sheets, writes Alexander Ecob.

A handful of companies control online publishing, but what are the rules?
Design Week’s recent move from print to online-only might turn a profit in the short term, but the Web exposes publications to the whims of a few ruling monopolies, writes John Ridpath.

The founders of GraphicDesign& describe their inaugural event.
It’s strange that graphic designers rarely seem to talk about one of the most interesting aspects of the job – that it involves working with and learning about so many other areas and disciplines beyond graphic design, write Rebecca Wright and Lucienne Roberts. We founded GraphicDesign& to foreground the relationship between graphic design and the extraordinarily wide range of subjects to which it connects.
