Common Objects is an ongoing collaborative project founded in 2012 by graphic designers Mélanie Dautreppe-Liermann (FR) & Margherita Huntley (UK).

We met while studying at Central Saint Martins, and began working together as an occasional studio on projects that emphasise our shared approach, which aims to be interdisciplinary across art, design and humanities, and considers graphic design as a form of research in this area.

We are open to a range of concepts, formats and platforms, especially interested in printed matter but also in producing 'objects' (talks, exhibitions, workshops, publications, image-making).

Choses Communes a été fondé en 2012 par Mélanie Dautreppe-Liermann (FR) & Margherita Huntley (UK).

Margherita et Mélanie se sont rencontrées pendant leurs études à Central Saint-Martins (Londres) et ont commencé à collaborer sur des projets s'articulant autour d'une approche commune qui, expérimentale et interdisciplinaire, vise à questionner les formes établies.

Choses Communes situe sa pratique au point de rencontre des arts, du design et des sciences humaines et tend à considérer le design graphique comme une forme de recherche.

Ouverts à tous les formes et formats, nous sommes particulièrement intéressées par la production d'objets variés (conférences, expositions, évênements, ateliers, publications...) qui tendent à élargir le champ des possibilités et les définitions du design graphique.

From Aa to Zee: An Interpretive Index

A publication including nine dissertations written by students of BA Graphic Design. The project was an attempt to create a dialogue between the students� essays � within themselves, the texts narrate a con-versation between books, people and ideas.

We put together an index of the names and terms discussed, that is designed to work as a basic word-referencing tool, and a way to navigate through over-lapping areas of interest and sources of inspiration in the dissertations.

Through the incorporation of associative images and texts, generated through discussions and personal interpretations, we aimed to make the index a more �intelligent� and far-reaching tool for research. The structure of the book means it can be read by three people simultaneously.

In collaboration w/ Marie Artaker & Lisa Stephanides
