Alessio D’Ellena, 1985, is a type and graphic designer. He works with the design of typographic systems, investigating its processes as a non-dogmatic practice: type design as medium, stressing forms, stretching concepts, corrupting rules, misusing tools.
Federico Antonini, 1985, is a graphic designer and librarian at OBA (oba). At the centre of his investigation is the relationship between conceptual art and book design, changes of status in visual information and the specificities of (re)production means.
Alessio and Federico are Superness, a methodologically non-affirmative research group.
