HTML2Print, a F/LOSS publishing workflow for Médor
In this pecha kucha Gijs and Alex will present the collective OSP and its values and they will explain the advantages of using web-technologies in a hybrid publishing workflow. And speak about their experiences of using these tools to produce the Médor magazine.
Open Source Publishing (OSP) is a Brussels based collective making graphic design using only free and open source software: pieces of software that invite their users to take part in their elaboration. Founded in 2006 in the context of Brussels art organisation Constant, the OSP caravan now comprises a group of individuals from different background and practices: typography, graphic design, cartography, programming, mathematics, writing, performance. Through a collaborative practice, they work on workshops, commissioned or self-commissioned projects, searching to redefine their playground, digging for a more intimate relation with their tools. True to their name, OSP publishes all the the source files to their projects through their website http://osp.kitchen/.
