With the DSOS1 manual, Berlin-based Designershock present their webzine in interactive print form. Unlike numerous online-print-books, Designershock take the experimental challenge of creating an interactive print medium, i.e. the book bestly "functions" in combination with the internet. The interactive user manual Designer Shock Operating System 1 (DSOS1) includes instructions and the accompanying System CD leads the (registered) user to exclusive links and stations that enable the downloading of special fonts and other tools. For example, the reader and user reaches the exclusive DSFonts on the website which are presented in the book. By playing the respective games (DSEPM-"Electronic-PlayMates"), he or she can win and download them. The book-site-system is rounded off by two further sections: DSTLS (Designer Shock Tools) and DSDT (Designer Shock Desk Top). In the Tools section, one discovers the DS M.E.E.E.K. (ModulatedEsotericE-TypeKreator). DS M.E.E.E.K. is an exciting, interactive tool for synthesizing and modulating pixel font layouts. Desk Top offers desktop decoration, including DS Screensavers, DS-Wallpapers and DS Icons. This absolutely innovative connection between print and web creates an optimal environment for presenting the newest Designershock works. It also provides the "user" with access to future exclusive software updates by Designershock. The e-zine www.designershock.com presents uncommon information about outstanding designers as well as Designershock's own theme-orientated graphics.
