Talk—Show

For the upcoming Talk—Show at the HfG I took the oportunity to test out an early draft of the font I’am working on at the moment. So after two days of silk-screen printing, this is how it turned out.

Lepyka

Some time ago Avoid Red Arrows had a little stencil-workshop that I participated in. I just noticed that you can finally order the 15 different stencils, designed on this occasion on avoidredarrows.de.

My contribution to the set was Lepyka—an all lowercase face that is drawn with very few strokes per letter. The stencil is inspired by Herbert Bayer’s universal. The cuttings are designed to work with various pen widths, for different weights. When filled you even get a super black weight. The stencil is rotated by 180° for signs and numbers. All the stencils are produced by laser-cutting in clear acrylic glass.

Slanted on Designblast

Slanted published a very positive review of our Designblast Conference. So for those who missed it, maybe this little articel will induce you to drop by next year.

Today I got to photograph the programme we had prepared for our some 500 attendees. The Cover was a fold-out with schedule and further information, wich has on the inside the poster for the conference. Pinned to it was a 16-sheet notepad with different grids, to make notes and sketches during the day.

The java-magic was done by Matthias Gieselmann.
