Ice Typography

Ice Typography typography ice

Cameron Zotter, a design student at the Maryland Institute College of Art, made this typeface by photographing uppercase letters made of ice at specific points during the process of melting. The final image of melting letterforms is really striking, would make a nice print. See also: snow typography.(via found by james)

Australian artist Dominique Falla created this stunning thread and nail poster as an entry for this year’s Positive Posters competition. Via the Tactile Typographer:

The idea was born because I wanted to enter the Positive Posters competition and I wanted to do some wound string, so the concept of an interlocking network was born. I came up with a phrase, set it in trusty Helvetica, worked out how the nail grid would have to work, then I spent 6 hours nailing little tiny nails into an MDF board (I had a little help from passersby in the workshop) and another 4 hours winding coloured cotton and hey presto.

If you ask me it sounds like the poster competition has a winner. Head on over to Positive Posters to give it a vote. (thnx, dominique!)

I love this clever nail packaging by design student Pier-Philippe Rioux who proposed this as part of a class assignment. The nails are situated to create the numerals depicting their individual length. Brilliant. (via packaging uqam)

I’m loving this branding work for the Parklife 2011 Music Festival in Australia by Briton Smith and James Kape. The goal was to capture the essence of the music festival using miniature figures living on the turf-covered surface of the event’s logo. Here’s a making-of video, and many more photos if you’re interested. All of these hilarious little scenes make me wish Parklife was spelled Paaaarrrkkklliiifffeeee. Just sayin’.

Update: Here’s a strikingly similar project done for Ghent Creative City. (thnx, bálint!)

I’m enjoying these slick minimalist public transportation maps available at TRNSPRTNATION. Each train route is comprised of a long, repeated list of the station stops from that line. Only $25. They have maps available for Chicago, New York, London, San Francisco, Boston, and Washington D.C. (thnx, ryan!)

OK this is the last physical typography project for awhile, I promise. At first glance these wooden letters appear to be nothing more than a few blocks organized on a table to create a standard alphabet. However the letters are actually illusions of perspective, viewable only from the photographed angle, certain elements stacked high while others layered below are actually far in the background. Designed and photographed by Marc Böttler, see the full alphabet here. Neat! See also Jérôme Haldemann’s toothpick type project for a similar idea. (via ignant)
