“I can not believe the news today”

Jocelyn Cottencin, one of our 3D Typography contributors sent us his project of an art installation that took place in Pau, France this past March. There were a series of performances one in which students wearing sandwich board signs would move about the city and meet up at specific times to form words.

Ella Young / Box Alphabet

Ella Young a recent graduate from Bath Spa University in the UK sent us her box type that she completed in her final year at school. The typeface she created from her experimentation was then applied to a fictional campaign for a removal company playing with the emotions of moving house. She says via email “it was a lot of fun to make, and I ended up with so many boxes.”

Lance Schmittling, Jennifer Higerd, Dominic Flask

Today we received an experimental type project from graduate students Lance Schmittling, Jennifer Higerd, Dominic Flask from Fort Hays State University in Kansas. The projects were part of a 100 page book split into three sections: rules and guidelines for typography, history of typography, and experimental typography. “It was a blast to work on, and the book was given out to undergraduate students for reference” says Lance.

Tate Modern Book Shop

My husband Mike is in London today and sent Emily and I this picture showing only 2 books remaining at the Tate Modern book shop. According to our editor, Buzz Poole, a few weeks ago the book was prominently displayed on a table. Good news that it’s out in the world and people are buying it. On a slightly humorous note we’re in good company with the Emil Ruder book to the right!

Bavarian Pretzel Alphabet by Antonio de Luca

At last it appears that 3D Typography is out in world. It really feels like it’s been forever. Emily and I are now receiving emails and it’s really fun to hear the responses. We recently got one from Antonio de Luca based out of Amsterdam. We wished we had seen this project earlier. Apparently a very hungry Antonio chomped Bavarian pretzel’s into an alphabet except for the letter “T” and “Z”. Now there’s a challenge. (Photographed by Gunter Bieringer)
