A 366 Day Type Calendar for Year 2016

"Typodarium 2016 is the daily typography dose. A tear-off calendar, just like the one our grandma used to hang in the kitchen. But this calendar unveils a new font everyday. We can therefore have, a whole year long, the chance to broaden our knowledge, to discover the font’s history and developement, to possess a piece of jewellery that is new everyday. On the front, the font will be prominently displayed, and on the back it will be described in details. How it originated, from what or who came the inspiration and where we can obtain the font. We really want a story about your typeface!"

Monday Mo. Co. Type Bike by Jacob Eisinger

"Monday Mo. Co. is a new motorcycle clothing and lifestyle goods boutique opening soon in Birmingham. Illustration Studio I Love Dust teamed up with Boneshaker Bikes and Mutt Motorcycles to celebrate the mighty two-wheeler with an all new shop, including a gallery area where prints will be sold. They aproached me to create an artwork and this is what I came up with." says graphic designer Jacob Eisinger (Instagram)

P.s. Some of you might remember "Londong Bike" project created by Alex Trochut

Type Made From Fragments Of Famous Artworks

"The latest project from quirky Israeli typographer Oded Ezer takes one feature of a famous artwork, like the Mona Lisa, Van Gogh's self-portrait or Vermeer's Girl With A Pearl Earring, and uses it to create a typeface, to hilarious and disturbing effect. The typeface made of the surf from Katsushika Hokusai's The Great Wave off Kanagawa is innocent enough. But things get weird when Mona Lisa's finger is used to form a letter V or Van Gogh's mustache to create a T. Ezer's best typeface by far uses a piece Michelangelo's David, but we'll leave the specifics of that one a surprise." writes FastCo

3D Printed Textscape project by Hongtao Zhou

3D Printing brings new opportunities for creative persons, just take a look at typography project created by Hongtao Zhou. Textscape generates letter-sized 3D documents to visually profile the subject matters of the texts, such as cities, landscapes or figures. These documents make reading interactive for a general audience or blind people to read as knowledge, as well as art. This series of work has text variations of braille, language characters, calligraphy and number systems to bridge the text and its visuality in architecture, landscape, portraits and abstract matters. textscapes-Hongtao-Zho1
