Paper Alphabet for Sculpture Today

October 13, 2010

Christopher Jobson

From the AIGA Archives, a beautiful alphabet designed by Sonya Dyakova for Phaidon in 2007.

The alphabet sprung from wanting to highlight what makes sculpture different from other art forms. By cutting and folding a flat sheet of paper, a three-dimensional alphabet was devised. A considerable amount of effort went into crafting and arranging the letterforms, each one playfully varying in shape, the depth remaining constant.

The legibility of the type is greatly influenced by the angle from which it is viewed. When viewed directly from above, the edges of the paper create outlines, making the letterforms easy to read.

Anthony Burril Says: Say Yes More Than No

August 31, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Here at headquarters we just framed and hung Anthony Burril’s Work Hard and Be Nice To People print and now he’s already gone and teamed up with the West Wales non-profit The Do Lectures to make this sweet woodblock print.

The Do lectures are all about getting a handful of speakers together in one place, in the hope that they may inspire you to go Do something. To give you the tools and the desire to change the things you care about.

I’ll take one poster and one ticket to Wales, please. (via bltd)
