ChattyPub is a design tool in the making – leveraging a chat interface (Zulip) to apply styles and formats to the content of a publication. The tool is activated and further developed through workshops. The workshops explore, in a practical manner how a process of co-designing a publication unfolds, specifically when several people are designing at the same time using a chat interface. Through workshops H&D tried to open up the process of making this tool, and explores together with participants its possibilities and limitations and build community around it coming-into-being.

Chattypub was first tested during the H&D Summer Academy 2021, later presented and tried out at GfZK Dig-it and was used to design the Network Imaginaries Publication book
