What happens when unrelated communities fuses into a global village, when cultures mix, traditions dissolve, and something new rises from the amalgam? In search of cultural identity and cultural bastards, the authors embark on an extreme expedition: in a mere 21 days, this team of designers visited the major hot spots of globalization, flying to Mexico City, L.A., Tokyo, Hong Kong, Bangkok, and Dubai before their return to Frankfurt.
They conducted hundreds of meetings with artists, musicians, designers and authors in order to compile the material for a comprehensive understanding of the personal interpretation of a manifold of different impressions. This cultural bastardization is exposed through the work of famous contributors in the form of a printed book, CD of a type library designed by internationally renown typographers, and music soundtrack.
