From pen-and-ink vernacular styles to digital rendering, to the use of mixed media, this volume showcases how new typefaces have been formed, transformed and used in unconventional ways to create symbolic images and patterns.
Each of these high-quality projects is accompanied by an insightful commentary that explores the conceptualisation and creative application of type aesthetics with digital and analogue techniques in graphic design.
An ideal source for designers, illustrators, clients and anyone keen in the creative possibilities of typography contributing to a more sophisticated visual language that communicates and intrigues.
