Franc González. Barcelona (Spain), 1987.
Franc is a visual designer graduated in the master of Media Design: Experimental Publishing at the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam. His work intersects printed matter digging into the sociopolitical side of software and design as part of his studies, in an ongoing quest to better understand the radical implications of digital tools to society and individuals in general. This has led to experiment with diverse publishing formats; from books, to coding or sonic experiments. His last project, led him to research the use of revision control software in journalism, and the exercise of building digital repositories as a way to publish and document sensitive information. These last few years, he has worked closely with experienced designers, such as studio Renate Boere, developed collaborative projects with talented students from the Piet Zwart Institute, volunteered in educational projects in Germany, and published several projects alongside his studies in the UK and the Netherlands.
