If our recent findings are anything to go by, the possibilities are endless when it comes to typography inspiration. Fonts can be crafted from almost any idea; often resulting in some truly unique offerings. When we stumbled across this typography, we were hit with a pang of glorious nostalgia.
American graphic designer Matt Stevens’ typographic study combines some of his all-time favourite typefaces with the love of old automotive manuals and exploded diagrams. The result is a brilliant vintage font that showcases these particular fonts in a whole new light.
Stay with me
created by vienna-based studio grafisches büro is a series of images that playfully interpret which dogs could be related to which typeface - a dalmation as courier, or perhaps a german shepherd as helvetica. the work observes each pet for their various characteristics in the same capacity as comparing fonts - finding the similarities in that of nature and that of a typographer’s design. The poster was printed using a silk screen technique on sheets of 1000 by 700 mm and published in a limited edition box.
A project really interesting and different from the usual one created by Eunah Kim . It is a real Helvetica Detector , a detector that scans the people who are to enter the room 302 of the School of Visual Arts where Kim studied.
The aim of the project is to demonstrate in some way as the ’ Helvetica is ubiquitous in our lives, considered by many as the official character of the twentieth century, was able to convey a universal aesthetic clarity and neutrally as a few other characters have been able to do in the course of the last century.
The service is free and items are collected seized and put on display just to show students how we are bound to this character. An artistic idea on the border with the challenge of those who (perhaps) is sick of seeing the ’ Helvetica everywhere or those who appreciate the ultimate use and asks that the world would be without the Helvetica ?
