The panel Using and Misusing Tools highlighted the work with specially developed design tools, but also design concepts and rules that graphic artists follow. Jürg Lehni and Ted Davis both make use of the latest technologies – albeit in different ways. While Lehni's software-controlled robot Otto draws designs on a blackboard using chalk, Davis developed basil.js, an open source scripting library that allows designers to automate certain work processes. Ines Cox, on the other hand, is critical of the latest developments and the interdependence of design and technology. Unlike Lehni and Davis, graphic designer Anja Kaiser experiments less with digital tools than with activist value systems. Kaiser is guided by her attitude towards feminism, gender roles and asymmetrical power structures.
