Disorderly Conduct explores the significance of simple play and chance in the experimental stage in the design process. A series of books, Disorderly Conduct includes experiments and processes that strip away orderly constructs of perfectionism and control in typographic imagery. The non-linearity of the experimental stage in the design process is reflective of the changeable nature of design practices. Each experiment uses the words of artists to explore the tension between order and chaos. The experiments use chance and play influenced by each artist to produce hand generated typographic imagery. Play is a game supporting instinctive art making practices. The artists are Sophie Taeuber-Arp and Jean (Hans) Arp, Marcel Duchamp, Alighiero Boetti and Eva Hesse. These artists were chosen as they used different techniques to capture the relationship between order and disorder. The books include instructions for visual communicators to experiment with typographic imagery. They also include examples that result from interpreting the instructions.
