Stranger Projects is a publishing design practice anchored in disrupting the traditional publishing sector. We craft subversive approaches to editorial design and communication using digital networks for critical reflection and community-building.
We primarily work on self-initiated editorial, media, and exhibition projects. Occasionally, we accept commissions to create next-generation web, editorial, and visual identity projects in collaboration with forward-thinking individuals, institutions, and organizations in art, culture, media, and technology. Our work is driven by a shift from affirmative to critical, from problem-solving to problem-finding, from competition to cooperation, and design as a solution for production to design as a medium for debate.
The practice is rooted in a form of publishing that Dutch art curator Nat Muller has defined as “a gesture that accommodates the political, the artistic, and in some cases, the defiant… A gesture is something preceding the action, and therefore signifies motion and agency of the most expressive and potent kind, precisely because it is wrought with intentionality.” Our work seeks to pursue the various thought asymmetries, aberrations, adaptations, and metamorphoses that account for such gestures.
