A towering letter ‘T’ for T Magazine’s winter travel edition by Lego artist Sachiko Akinaga inspired by Central Park. The piece took eleven days to complete, with several 16-hour nonstop shifts. (via notcot)

Mekkanika Experimental Typeface

November 3, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Mekkanika is a mind-blowing experimental typeface by Italian designer Riccardo Sabatini based on the Din Alternate Black font. 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.

UK designer Dominic Le-Hair made this slick magnetized poster by cutting rubber magnets into letters with an x-acto knife and sandwiching them between sheets of paper before dusting it with iron fillings. See more of the project here.

Minimalist Juice Packaging

October 10, 2011

Christopher Jobson

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. If only all food packaging could be this user-friendly. Steve Jobs would approve. (via design work life)

Jing Zhang’s Industrial Typography

October 9, 2011

Christopher Jobson

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.

Ice Typography

September 24, 2011

Christopher Jobson

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)
