Artist Interview with collaborative team, Anne Ulku and Michael Derus
Meet Anne Ulku, a talented illustrator, designer, and typographer residing in Minneapolis, MN. Anne has participated in several past shows at Light Grey Art Lab including the Expletive Typography Poster Show, HOT PARTY, and currently, the Nights and Weekends exhibition. Anne works for many large clients creating freelance design, as well as creates personal work, weekly projects, and design challenges. Anne is known for her beautiful designs with excellent use of color, arrangement of graphics, playful style, and clever concepts.
In the Nights and Weekends exhibition, Anne has a selection of work from a recent collaborative project with writer Michael Derus. The two of them began their collaboration, Haikuglyphics, in January 2013. “Haiku writer Michael Derus and designer/illustrator Anne Ulku came up with the idea to create written poetry - haiku - in graphic form. The work is inspired by life, culture and experiences while juxtoposing concise thoughts and ideas. With Haikuglyphics, the ancient Japanese form of writing poetry has taken on a new turn in the form of illustrated, typographical designs …” This week, I had the chance to interview Anne and Michael and ask a few questions about their project- thoughts, reflections, process, and ideas for what is to come. Below, we can see both of their responses to the questions.
