typeworship: Yazan Halwani’s Calligraffiti I recently came across a fantastic mural by Fantastic mural, “Our grandfathers invented the zero, and their grandchildren became zeroes” (top image) by Yazan Halwani Halwani says, he wants to instigate “cross-cultural conversations” and to inspire a “positive view of the Arab world.” He’s been challenging the status quo with prominent murals around Lebanon’s capital city which has earned him the nickname Beirut’s Banksy.  Halwani has been credited with...

‘Pleasure you can’t Measure.’Today I was introduced to a forthcoming book that celebrates the art of the British funfair and its most popular ride: the Waltzer. As well as being every funfair’s most iconic ride, the machine provides an unrivalled canvas for some of the country’s most talented, yet unrecognised artists. The dizzying array of artwork all screams: Ride me!The author and photographer, Nigel Edginton-Vigus, has been taking photos of the rides for two decades, traveling all over the U...

Stunning light calligraphy  These amazing images are not actually Arabic but highly stylized French calligraphy by Julien Breton. Julien, from Nantes in Western France, first started visualising rap lyrics, producing these long-exposure photographs in 2006. Over time he developed an ‘alphabet’ containing French aesthetics and Arabic calligraphy in a desire to bridge Arabian and Western visual languages. While always anchored in lettering this almost abstract style aims to move beyond words to ev...

Playing wth type These caught my eye—simple compositions showing-off typefaces designed by the Copenhagen based design agency, e-Types. The shop, PlayType, is an extension of the agency, and was the first physical shop in the world, selling typefaces and type related products in 2011.  As the name suggests, the shop is an entity where the in-house team can play with the letters they’ve designed and create products for design conscious shoppers. They also collaborate with other designers, a...

thedsgnblog: Crescendo Magazine Design by Fabian Fohrer “By flicking through the magazine readers first get a calendar of concerts and events in the smallest booklet, followed by audition disc, a special topic booklet that tells the story of Vassilis Christopoulos in the first issue and a booklet about the orchestra and its more than 60 musicians. The largest booklet contains the actual magazine including topics such as recent concerts, stories and the history of noted composers.” Fabian Fohrer...

M C Escher inspired 3D typeface This 3D optical ‘illusion’ typeface has been carefully constructed to be freestanding with the minimum physical structure required. Each still represents the character of its letterform and the whole alphabet is visible when viewed from the same angle. The sketches look beautifully intricate and were designed by a student (named as “Alice V”) studying on a typography course with Paul Vickers.
