Making Known
Making Known, a studio for book design and printed matter, aims to work collectively with passionate individuals, artists, writers, publishers, and art institutions.

The studio, established by Ryan Gerald Nelson (Yale MFA, 2015), centers its focus on shaping and presenting engaging forms of content, knowledge, and expression. Making Known possesses a level of experience and discernment to take on content-rich projects requiring thorough design and art direction, typographic expertise, and print production.

Images: Peripheries, an ongoing project. The image existing in the periphery, seen as an overlooked remnant, the excess of cultural expression, the detritus of communication, a specimen of archaeological study. Now, fragmented and amputated from its sojourn in the margins, the image existing in the periphery is altered and further removed from its original context. Sourced from the easily jettisoned image content that circulates online and in print. Sourced from my own body of loosely collected visual output, periodically revisited and mined for its workable visual fragments. Extracted, resuscitated, understood as a new form of language, and presented here, at random, in unforeseen compositions.

Elsewhere: Samples of previous work at Making Known, Flat Files. Occasionally publishing at Edition MK.
