Network Osaka

Network Osaka

I have been following Network Osaka‘s work for the past year on Flickr, and the work continues to impress upon each new posting. Their work is very retro, but at the same time a unique and modern twist on type and overall communication. It is designers like this that I would love to see redesign […]

Hannah

Hannah

Starting 2009 with a bang, we bring you Hannah!   Hannah is a font comprised of three versions that work together as one, producing not variation and contrast between weights but between widths.

Agostina

Agostina

This instantly gives endless typographic possibilities to the user. Agostina takes advantage of the OpenType font format that opens further exploration with a full latin and limited alternate characters as well.

Shu and I saw that we had enough room (barely) to get all the posters up if we used the walls and fabricated cardboard walls. The posters that
