Ba’ndo Lab is the rookie camp of Ba’ndo Design Studio where young creative people from different departments and /or disciplines of universities find the opportunity of creative flourishing with a unique method. A year long journey starts every year with a group of four and all aim to discover their potential.
If you want to think, explore, design, talk about art movements, discuss a book or a movie, draw the idea you come up with, dance with the words, start your portfolio or develop the portfolio you already started – in short, if you want to learn everything about being creative, practice all and become a totally different person, then Ba’ndo Lab is your place!
Besides your portfolio please just explain who you are and why you are interested in Ba’ndo Lab’s rookie camp.
By the way, we are also not interested in what you’re majoring in the university because we only want people who is willing to learn more, become as productive as possible and free themselves while creating to join our community.
Ba’ndo Lab proudly presents it’s new project HütHüt with it’s first issue!
“Mantıku’t-Tayr”, one of the most significant Sufi literature piece where a story about birds is told by using various symbols forms the foundation of sufizm. We found our very own creative soul and it’s jounery within these symbols.
“In the original story, birds that are looking for Simurg aka Phoenix with the guidance of wise bird Hüthüt went through a tough journey. Many birds gave up or got hurt or died during the journey and only 30 of them manage to reach to the home of Simurg. Once they arrive and see Simurg, they realize that actually they’re Simurg and the home is just a mirror.
As the rookies of Ba’ndo Lab we’re on a journey in which we search for ourselves and Ba’ndo is the wise bird that guides us where we’re designers who keep searching ways to be more creative and productive.
The main topic of the first issue is a distruptive feeling: Hate. Hatred is distinct from short-lived feelings such as anger and disgust. Easy to say but hard to define.
Designers tried to find the basis of this feeling within them and understand it. Their creative work became the reflection of this feeling.
Hope this issue of Hüthüt will give you food for thought about your feelings as well.
This guidebook came to life out of necessity. The aim is to include all the rookies and experienced designers at Ba’ndo into the process of creating a new way of thinking and forming a unique design culture. Our only will is to increase the productivity level with a systematic thinking methodology and design language. We see sharing “Ba’ndo Design & Creation Philosophy Guidebook” with everyone, not just with our empoyees as our responsibility to the design world Wish it will take your interest as well in this long journey called “designing”.
Golden Typeface add-on is for graphic designers, web designers, UI designers as well as for many other artists in the design industry. Ba'ndo Lab - Golden Typeface enables you to create your design system typographically.
The most frequently faced problem in the World of design is not being able to create with rule and context based system. For a correct hierarchical format, font spaces should be in correct line heights. This is an essential point for an aesthetic structure in design. This add-on calculates the font sizes according to the golden ratio. Or you may only enter you text area height and then create your correct font height. Also you may use the line height created for you.
We will continue to upgrade this add-on. ‘Golden Ratio Typography (GRT) Calculator’ made this add-on possible and led us the way.
