Alphabet T’s by Hiroaki Ohya

We’re inspired by the letterform t-shirts by Hiroaki Ohya, a Japanese born fashion designer. Unfortunately we can’t find any information about the project. If anyone has any knowledge please let us know.

Mathieu Lehanneur: LabGate

In 2001 Mathieu Lehanneur graduated from ENSCI-Les Ateliers (French National School for Industrial Design) and opened his own studio dedicated to industrial design and interior architecture. His work is known for blurring the lines between science, nature and art. LabGate was completed in 2012 for The Laboratory. The organization is a place of art and design at the frontiers of science, supported by the International Network ArtScience Labs, created by David Edwards (writer and professor at Harvard University).

We are drawn to the juxtaposition of the humanistic, geometric, san serif, custom typeface and the radiating line patterns rendered in metal.

Handmade Type

Handmade Type is a self-intiated typographic experiment by designer Tien-Min Liao, where she explores the relationships between upper and lower-case letters.  She drew with ink on one or both of her hands to make the upper-case letter, then through movement and perspective she created the lower case letter.

Trollbäck + Company

We know the holiday season is behind us but we love this glittery holiday card from Trollbäck + Company. The card was designed by Stina Smith. The studio’s founder is a self-taught designer from Sweden, Jakob Trollbäck. He began his artistic career as a DJ in his native Stockholm. Having found a commonality in music and design, Trollbäck creates pieces that transport his audience to planes of sensorial experience. The intertwining and motion of the metallic ribbon we find electrifying!

Jason Ramirez: Urban Decay

Designer / Art Director Jason Ramirez found a full alphabet naturally occurring in the sidewalks of New York City. He appropriately calls his typeface Urban Decay. We’ll never look at sidewalks the same way again!
