Hey, I’m a universty student studying graphic design
I can’t recall how I stumbled across this website but its been in my bookmarks for a couple of years and I’ve found myself revisting regularly to check for any updates. Ascii/Ansi art is effectivley the first form of digital graphic design and as such I’m looking to cover it in one of my projects.
My research so far is only to a very basic level. I understand the basic history and how ANSI came about. However, I am looking to engage more with the community and possibly create a couple of pieces in collaboration with artists.
The outcome will be a short pdf format ‘book’ documenting some stand out community members alongside their outcomes. All will be appropriatley credited. (I’ve seen elsewhere on the forum a book has already been printed about ascii art. This is strictly a university project and will not be sold)
If anyone is prepared to help I’d be very appreciative. I’m looking to do the following.
- Have some interviews with significant figures
- Collaborate with an artist on a couple of outcomes
Futhermore if you could point me in the direction of any sources of general information/larger forums that would be great. Feel free to message me privatley or reply below.
Thanks a lot
