What happens when you explore type without the typographer’s eye in mind? What happens when you take type out of the centuries old, black and white, static world of type specimens?
CDKVW is a YouWorkForThem short that takes five various fonts into the depths of the unknown and against various natural elements. Composed and filmed with similar methods from our Type in Water/Ice projects, the final CDKVW clips were taken back into the computer and shredded even more. The final result borders on the somewhat absurd, leaving us with an intrigue of what is to come on the next exploration.
Some of you may recall a little font release by the name of Black Slabbath that we launched back in 2008. Well, the designer of that fantastic font release is back at it again. Stefan Kjartansson is this designer in mention and his latest font creation is anything but normal. We have to say, this is one of the most original font designs to cross our paths, if not the most ever. This upcoming release goes by the name Cumulus and Foam, and will contain 3 different styles. Look for this beauty releasing this summer, only at yours truly, YouWorkForThem.
