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 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.”

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.

3D Typography includes photo stills from the music video for the band Softlightes’ Heart Made of Sound. Art director Jonathan Zawada uses found objects like silverware, rubber gloves, sugar cubes and floppy disks, among other things to create letterforms. Check it out!

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!

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)
