Newsletter Interventions by Jaka Železnikar are an artistic and communicative experiment embedded into the Create to Connect -> Create to Impact Newsletter.
During the Create to Connect -> Create to Impact project 13 newsletter interventions were created.
The experiment consists of three parts.
First, series of small ASCII art inspired ‘images’ made by use of typography not to convey semantic meaning but to create visual structures. These visual structures are embedded into the newsletter, separating different content sections. In this way the newsletter gains both in terms of readability as content sections are clearly visually marked as well as in terms of uniqueness of the newsletter holding original creative content (especially in opposition/comparison to use of stock visuals – commonly found in commercial newsletters).
Second, small semantical content consisting of text, images or video is included in the newsletter to comment, add and amplify a topic included in the newsletter.
An extension to the practice described above is creation of small but obviously authored web pages reflecting on activities of a partner of the project, also exposed in the current issue of the Newsletter.

These pages are meant as small reflections on certain events. With emphasis on use of web technologies in creative and exploratory way, as far as possible from the cliché use of web design (which brought about the internet where almost all pages look the same). While these pages are not meant to be used as a part of the public relations work, it might be used also in these channels, as original and unusual take on the subject might attract attention which is not accessible with commonplace PR and informative activities.
Beside the two of such works, also independent, authored web work (related to the project topics) was created: Private Property – Access Forbidden (initial October 2021, update July 2022).
This work is experimental, it tries to gather as much feedback from the involved parties as possible and react to it. It started in 2019 and it runs for the whole duration of the Create to Connect -> Create to Impact project.
