As guest editor and graphic designer, Kyuha Shim, Assistant Professor from Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Design, curated and designed <GRAPHIC> #37, a special issue on ‘Introduction to Computation’ and invited 16 contributors (12 designers, 4 curator & writers) for conversation. He introduces the issue in the editorial and contributes an essay for introduction titled, "Computation as Logic: Production + Process in Graphic Design."
This issue addresses two questions: “How might computational approaches inform contemporary graphic design practices?” and “Might programming or computational systems be the future of the graphic design?”
Issue #37 of GRAPHIC discusses the validity and possibilities of computational approaches today and in the future, as well as exploring the experiences of graphic designers who use computation in their work.
The contributors to this issue are A2/SW/HK, Adrian Shaughnessy, Andrew LeClair, Andrew Blauvelt, Benedikt Groß, Catalogtree, Ellen Lupton, Erik van Blokland, Frederike Huygen, Hansje van Halem, Jonathan Puckey, Jürg Lehni, Ken Frederick, LUST, MuirMcNeil and Rob Giampietro.
