"Content is king."
Commonly quoted in many circles and contexts, the adage holds true in a lot of instances. But sometimes the best content is none at all.
Orlando-based designer Michael Forrest has started a compelling and gorgeous side project called “Nontent”. It seeks to breakdown the visual composition of layout into its individual properties, stripped of image and text, in an effort to explore and challenge the effect layout has on the viewer and on the designer.
Rooted in De Stijl and Bauhaus influences, it is a refreshing clash of classic ideas and modern sensibilities. In an age of image and text overstimulation, Nontent's silence screams for a revival that just might be sorely needed.
I highly encourage you to follow along.
