When minimalism expresses the essence of meaning, design comes to honor the pioneering work of some of the world’s most famous scientists.

Words on their own

February 19, 2013 § Leave a comment

When words and letters acquires a life of their own. Ebon Heath liberates the letters from their frame, the printed page and creates laser-cut sculptures of the letters, giving them a three-dimensional existence with which viewers can actually interact.  His typography sculptures, called Stereo.type, become a magical transformation of the written word into what he describes as a “new language of physical type.”EbonHeath1

Matching types

March 28, 2012 § Leave a comment

By types we mean typefaces. And by matching we mean dating. This is the perfect game for typefaces to get to know each other and set the perfect date. Type Connection is a typographic dating game created by Aura Seltzer, whose aim is to pair typefaces and learn more about them.

When choosing a typeface, different options of ‘potential dates’ are presented.

You decide your strategy and send the two typefaces on a date.

Well, good luck!

Beleza on the walls

February 25, 2012 § 2 Comments

Beauty is not always in the streets, it is on the walls as well. In particular, on the walls of Brasilândia Vila, a poor suburb on the outskirts of São Paulo, where Madrid Spain based artist collective Boa Mistura transformed them into a typographical scenery.

Words such as beleza, amor, doçura, firmeza and orgulho (beauty, love, sweetness, firmness and pride) were painted on the walls in perspective and revealed from just one point of view,  as people walk past the one location where the lines merge into the form of words.
