Bath-based designer Jack Archer made this fun alphabet using the lit screens of televisions.
A project inspired by the phrase “Turn off your TV” mentioned in a lecture by adventurer Alastair Humphreys. To illustrate this idea I built a shelving unit to house 15 small televisions; creating a dot-matrix grid where individual TV’s could be turned on or off, to produce different letterforms and numbers.
Gotta love that “T”. (via quipsologies)
Handschrift is an experimental typeface by designer José Ernesto Rodriguez out of Berlin who created each letterform with a single photocopy of his hands. (via typegoodness)
I’m a sucker for huge signs made with pencils, and this work from Spagnola & Associates is no exception. Via their web site:
In 2011 Spagnola & Associates faced the challenge of designing their new office space. They created a 20′ wide dimensional wall to stimulate ideas and complete the office. 2,804 pencils were hammered into pre-drilled holes in the panels.
David Schwen demonstrates how typographic ligatures are created. It’s all about the details. (via notcot)
Russian designer Ruslan Khasanov made this liquid font, au revoir, by pouring wet ink on wet paper to form each letter and then shot nearly 600 digital photos. After selecting the best images he made a few color corrections in Photoshop and the typeface was born. See the entire project here. (via ad week)
