Jack Henrie Fischer is a graphic designer, writer, and publisher whose work makes interventions in conditions of reading and writing across a spectrum of technologies and platforms.
His recent projects have investigated, with a variety of interlocutors, the shifting senses of language as a technologically and politically mediated material. His work seeks to locate or create positions from which the designer is compelled—or compels another—to speak.
Currently a partner in Other Forms, an office for design and publishing, Jack previously worked as a design researcher at the Jan van Eyck Academie in Maastricht, Netherlands and as a designer at Bruce Mau Design in Chicago.
In addition to teaching courses on typography, publishing, and the internet, Jack edits and designs the extra-disciplinary multi-form design journal Counter-Signals, and co-edits Dum Ditty Dum, a blog and pamphlet series about the constitutional intersections of writing and rock music. He also writes, slowly, about the aesthetic entanglements of the book form with its political and economic modes of production.
