Sabatini scanned hundreds of mechanical technical drawings and used the component pieces to create each intricate letterform, leaving no letter, number, Autobot or Decepticon logo unfinished. Take a deep dive through this epic project on Behance. He even provides a soundtrack.
This is some of the most honest and beautiful packaging I’ve encountered in a while. Designed by Doubleday and Cartwright for BluePrintJuice, the entire label is simply a list of plain ingredients printed in a color that contrasts with the juice inside.

UK-based graphic designer and illustrator Jing Zhang is currently working on a beautiful series of isometric letters, rendering typographical forms as small industrial buildings, machines, factories, and landscapes. Via Behance she says the hardest part isn’t creating them, but finishing them, and that she’s running out of patience. Maybe we should encourage her a bit? I can’t wait to see the rest of these. See more of the series here.
