Elastic Font

June 20, 2011

Christopher Jobson

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)

Liquid Typography

Christopher Jobson

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)

I’m a sucker for physical type, and this project is no exception. Design student Erik Berger made this fun typeface out of a pound of rubber bands. (via typegoodness)

Swiss design student Jérôme Haldemann was given the class assignment of creating a font based on an animal theme. The animal he received at random: a hedgehog. Behold his prickly, three-dimensional interpretation of Bodoni: TYPICK. Thanks Jérôme for sharing your work with Colossal!

A-1 Scrabble Designer Edition

February 21, 2011

Christopher Jobson

A-1 Scrabble Designer Edition is a student project by Andrew Clifford Capener in which he proposes the ability to order a game board with customized typography. Yes!

The set would come in the font of your choice or with an assorted font pack. The scrabble board and interior box are made out of solid walnut, and the exterior box is made from birch. Each of the 6 board pieces is magnetized to fit together perfectly and each piece slides nicely into its respective slot in the box and is secured by interior magnets as well. The interior of the exterior box as well as the bottoms of the 6 board pieces are lined with cork, to protect them while in use.

A game board this sexy could reinvigorate an entire industry. Nice work Andrew. (via lovely package)

Christopher Jobson

Oslo resident and designer Veronica Falsen Hiis settled down in a cozy snow drift to sculpt this great collection of icy type. The clarity of the letterforms is truly impressive despite the frozen medium. See also her type made from the edges of books. (via fastco)

Curvestitch Typography

February 13, 2011

Christopher Jobson

A great typography experiment by Thom Isom as part of his last university project at De Montfort University, Leicester.

Curve-stitch typography created for my final major university project entitled Ludd in April 2010. A range of installations and experiments based around the materials and techniques of arts and crafts. The typeface has been created in both digital and crafted formats with each letter nailed and threaded through 26 separate A4 boards.
