CRISP Platform
CRISP Magazine #3

How do you propel a discussion about innovation?

CRISP Platform is a cooperation between researchers and designers from a variety of companies and educational institutes in the creative field. Eight innovative projects extend the scope of design to Product Service Systems. Designers learn about research and how it can be applied, researchers learn about design practice and how to align their research with industry objectives. CRISP is an excellent example of how science, the creative industry, and companies can work together to achieve meaningful innovation.

This issue is themed around the value of prototyping for innovation and implementation. Much discussion centers on how much to actually make and how much to fake. We prototyped the title as physical lettering to drive this point home.

CRISP Magazine brings the insights of the projects into a tangible product, to stimulate over 200 project members during the CRISP initiative. We co-created the magazine with the editorial team, working side by side to untangle complex information into a legible, natural flow. Two layers of information are coded with distinctive colors, and projects cross-references help to find similar stories.


Creating the cover

When prototyping is the subject at hand, there’s no better way to illustrate this then by firing up the 3D printer and creating a physical prototype of the title.
