Foreword

The PROCESS aesthetic is about examining our work, turning out its carefully hidden seams and joints, and tracing them in gold.

We are lucky enough to feature work by contributors from a fantastic diversity of disciplines, including interaction design, condensed-matter physics research, visual art, fiction, zines for programmers, couture and textile design, graphic design, game design, and music technology.

What we’ve learned from PROCESS is that we need interfaces that treat creative processes as first-class citizens.

Honestly? “final.pdf” would make a great epitaph.
