Micro Type

June 26, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Micro Type is another lusciously liquid typeface by Rus Khasanov (previously) who pours wet ink on wet paper and uses a digital camera to capture the results. From the looks of the final project I think he used some sort of macro lens for this. Check out the full alphabet here.

Design student Jenny Kyvik Hutchens designed this elastic font as part of an assignment while at Westerdals School of Communication in Oslo. It was first made by hand in a grid system, and then vectorized into a snazzy print. (via typography served)

Ryo Shimizu Creates Immense Stories that Crumble from Gallery Walls

(click images for detail)

CNJPUS TEXT is the latest work from Tokyo-based artist Ryo Shimizu. The text is formed by using strokes borrowed from Chinese characters and then restructuring them into letters of the Roman alphabet. Via artist a day:

Shimizu is influenced by Japanese traditions and practices–the relationship between history and modern society and between the self and other people. His work ranges from photography to three-dimensional objects and installations.

This appears to be his third and largest in a series of text-based installations dating back to 2009. (via artist a day, sweet station)

Anamorphic Typography

June 8, 2011

Christopher Jobson

London-based graphic design student Joseph Egan created this fantastic anamorphic typographic installation at Chelsea College of Art & Design, using the works of Felice Varini as a jumping off point. The video really drives the whole idea home, I would love to see something like this in person. (via kastormag)

New Hand-Cut Typography from Bianca Chang

June 8, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Sydney-based designer and paper artist Bianca Chang (previously) creates beautifully complex typographic sculptures by sequentially cutting shifting forms out of dozens if not hundreds of sheets of paper. Once stacked, the three dimensional letterforms are born. She recently recorded this great stop motion piece for Sydney’s A4 Paper Festival. I’m really excited to see her work progressing and can’t wait to see where it leads her. (via picked by six)
