vis/res is a publication produced 6 times a year to showcase emerging talent in graphic design and illustration. Each issue has a central theme and features contributing work from 10 designers & illustrators.
issue 02 theme:
Technology is blurring the borders between reality and virtual-reality. Through the rise of the virtual self, or ‘avatar’, humanity is moving towards a dual state of being as more of us begin to create online personas to complement our real selves. Yet whilst we begin to separate into two ‘selves’ in many ways, there are also instances emerging that begin to converge the digital with the real. Can the personas of the virtual realm leak into our everyday life?
