X consumes ongoing potential professional inspiration – always brings something to capture, record, explore ideas. X works across countries with Y and Z. Transmission takes place through various channels. When not in flight mode, X is always easily reached. The same goes for Y and Z, and everyone else in the field, outside their field, and all around. X never leaves empty handed. X wants handy objects, portable forms… adaptable extensions to be ever more flexible. Whether in the airport, on a couch, in a train, or crossing the world, X extends work. X makes work work everywhere. X likes objects, but prefers simplicity. X is free. X is captivated. X structures surroundings to adapt to the flow. One flow, many options.

fanfare inc. Tools is the third edition of a research series on working conditions in smaller scale organizations in the creative industries. The third edition of fanfare inc. sets out to research the concept of contemporary tools. In this context, tools should be approached as items extending our work adjustability. In line with the nomadic focus of the research, each chapter is launched in a new location and context, inviting a new set of designers and peers to contribute to the topic. Shared as a publication, a traveling display, a series of flags, a nomadic conversational podcast, and as a website fanfare inc. was presented at Its a Book in Leipzig, Libros Mutantes in Madrid, Manifesta 12 in Palermo and fanfare, Amsterdam.
