Ammunition partner Brett Wickens is one of a hundred designers worldwide who was invited to design a logo for the ‘Changing Faces of Bowie’ project that will be featured in the upcoming David Bowie retrospective at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London (March 23 – August 11, 2013).
The print is now up for pre-order and will only be available during the exhibition.
Launched by Neville Brody and Jon Wozencroft in 1991, FUSE is the experimental publication that took design and typography into radically new and unforeseen spaces. Now, to commemorate the release of its 20th issue, Taschen has published a complete retrospective of the interactive series that did so much to foster contemporary typeface design.
With its release, FUSE 1-20 revisits stunning work from the past two decades including Crux95, a font designed by Ammunition partner Brett Wickens. Each edition of FUSE brings together four designers commissioned to create an experimental typeface each and a poster based upon a central theme.
“I built Crux95 around the concept of a typeface in transit. A sequence of 1s and 0s, ons and offs, ups, downs and sideways. The shapes started to remind me of images fractured through stained-glass, infusing the font with a quasi-religious aspect. When communication is binary, it has no audience. The process of modulating/ demodulating communication gives it meaning, but can also lead to fascinating, nonsensical errors. Binary pictures corrupted in transit. Words scrambled into machine-induced code. This is the spirit of Crux95.”
Crux95 was originally featured in FUSE 14 “Cyberfuse” (1995).
The special edition box contains select work from FUSE 1-18 and two exciting new issues of FUSE 19 (produced but not published) and FUSE 20 (a brand new commission by the FUSE team).

It’s official! The panels for SXSW Interactive 2012 have been announced and Ammunition partner Matt Rolandson will be speaking.
The topic “Closer to One: Buddhism and the Internet of Things” is based on the ancient philosophy that all beings and objects are interconnected. As the not-particularly-spiritual leader of Ammunition's User Experience Design practice, Matt will participate in a panel presentation exploring how humans are being networked into the “Internet of things” and how we can design “enlightened” objects and services that enhance human connectedness. Co-panelists include Sara Öhrvall, head of Bonnier R&D, and Vincent Horn, Buddhist Geek and meditation teacher.
SXSW Interactive will run from March 9th-13th in Austin, Texas. Read the full description of the panel here.
