Il y a près de quatre ans, sur l’invitation généreuse de Renaud Huberlant, j’entamais, avec la co-animation de ce blog, un exercice de balisage du flux informationnel de la toile et une tentative modeste de décryptage des enjeux et des élans du graphisme contemporain.
Aujourd’hui, après avoir chaleureusement remercié Renaud pour son invitation et Simon Lagneaux pour son travail de développement et de suivi de cet interface, je vais poursuivre cette aventure critique et pédagogique au sein de l’espace plus collectif proposé par la revue en ligne Tombolo.
Cet article est donc le dernier que je produirai, non sans quelque émotion, sur 2 ou 3 choses que je sais d’elle… la typographie.

Un tombolo c’est ce genre de talus qui protège ou constitue le lien littoral entre deux étendues terrestres. Une forme d’isthme, une langue de sable dans la mer qui s’accroche à une île. Un dépôt sédimentaire résultant du mouvement des flux, des vagues, des courants, des dérives marines. Un centre, un milieu, un lien qui articule et dessine les formes. Une plage, une marge. Un tombolo c’est aussi un tumulus, un tas qui contient, dissimule, des choses à fouiller, remonter…

Tombolo est une nouvelle revue en ligne qui voudrait créer des liens entre les archipels du savoir sur le graphisme et plus si affinités, dans une forme critique propre, avec des contributeurs d’ici et d’ailleurs.
Tombolo se structure géologiquement par strates. En surface affleure la couche Flux constituée par de courts articles à la volée. En fouillant, on découvre Meta, la strate des textes plus denses et nourris. Puis vient la couche des Entrevue(s) avec des personnalités du champ élargi du graphisme. Enfin, au plus profond, le discours se nourrit du Beauregard, ce substrat fluctuant des productions goûtées d’images fixes et animées…

Strates, sédiments et couches

Tombolo a été initié par officeabc (Catherine Guiral, Brice Domingues) et votre serviteur.
Tombolo a été conçu et développé graphiquement par Muriel Issard, Manuel Zenner et Ambroise Maupate.
Tombolo sera nourri des contributions d’Alexandru Balgiu, Christophe Lemaitre, Jérôme Dupeyrat, Benoit Buquet, Vivien Philizot, Randy Nakamura et bien d’autres…

A tombolo is a kind of slope that protects or constitutes a coastal link between two land areas. It is a kind of isthmus, a spit of sand in the sea that clings to an island. It is a sedimentary deposit resulting from the movement of waves, flows, marine drifts. It is a center, a middle, a link that articulates and draws shapes. A tombolo is furthermore a tumulus, a heap that contains, conceals numerous things to dig, to research, to extrapolate…

Tombolo is a new online journal, which aims at creating links between the different archipelagos of knowledge on a little more than just graphic design, in a genuine critical form molded by its various contributors.
Tombolo is geologically structured by strata. ‘Flux’ is the surface layer and consists of short articles and reviews. A bit deeper lies ‘Meta’, which is the stratum of cunning texts, essays and research material. Then comes ‘Entrevue’ that will present a series of conversations with different personalities from the expanded field of graphic design. Finally, we reach the deeper stratum, ‘Beauregard’, where discourse finds its fuel in a substratum of selected images and film clips…

Tombolo was initiated by officeabc (Catherine Guiral & Brice Domingues) and Thierry Chancogne.
Tombolo was designed and developed graphically by Muriel Issard, Manuel Zenner and Ambroise Maupate.
Tombolo will gradually be layered with texts by Alexandru Balgiu, Christophe Lemaitre, Jérôme Dupeyrat, Benoit Buquet, Vivien Philizot, Randy Nakamura, and many more …
