YMT is an experimental publication about Visual Communication Design as a field of knowledge and is available in a limited edition print and is open source online.
YMT is designed and produced by second-year bachelor students in their third semester of study. It is not prescribed when a new student group starts to work on each volume. The student-designers are encouraged to explore all avenues of investigation into how the content (including their own contributions to the contents) may best be served through editorial design and publication means. YMT contains what has recently been questioned in our field in this academy and region with contributions of original content by second-year BA students in the course Editorial design and visual identity.
YMT introduces and invites students to design journalism, editorship, and authorship, and to how the nuanced visual language of text and image may be employed in a field that requires multimodal articulation. The making of YMT creates a situation for students, whose forte is not to write (or even talk), where autonomy is stimulated and ideas and thoughts are voiced in the visual language and through design writing. The students are invited into a creative conversation—professional dialogue and discourse—within a flat democratic structure of hierarchy. The students can and do contribute written content to YMT in addition to design and visual material
Teachers in the Editorial design and visual identity course in which YMT is made have been Dóra Ísleifsdóttir, Åse Huus, Magnus Nyquist, and Gustav Kvaal. Jan Edgar Hartvedt from Aksell AS in Bergen has been the printing and paper consultant for the course.
