Brian Banton’s “Heterosis Typeface”

Canada based freelance graphic designer Brian Banton uses transparent elastic and acrylic to make “Heterosis Typeface”. As he describes on his website, he created this 3-dimensional alphabet “by ‘blending’ two vector lines (essentially 1 dimensional) across a spatial plane.”

Luci Everett

We came across Luci Everett’s alphabet in Frankie, the Aussie magazine’s “look what we made”section. She made the delicate alphabet titled “alfalfabet” with scraps of paper, dried flowers and other bits and pieces from her collage work. “I saw a chance to create something from these odd shapes that I’ve kept—the good looking leftovers,” as quoted in Frankie.

Small and Mighty for ReadyMade magazine

Looking through our archives today I stumbled across pictures of Emily and I working on a 3D Type project of our very own. Using a white pegboard, dowels and really beautiful yarn from the Ozark Mountains we crafted a headline treatment, “Small and Mighty” for a Readymade magazine feature story. We miss the magazine. We wished it was still around.

This photo by Lajos Geenen appeared in the magazine.
