A friend of mine has recently showed me a book by Agathe Jacquillat and Tomi Vollauschek from design studio FL@33 called The 3D Type Book which I highly recommend if you are interested in this. (full reference for the book can be found below)
I absolutely loved some of the ideas there and would like to experiment with 3D type in my own projects somehow. So today, after I started feeling frustrated about my (non-existent) drawing or even tracing skills when attempting to work on the sketchbooks for Research and Development unit, I decided to move onto my newly discovered passion for collecting random things and visually documenting this as encouraged by Ben on our first session … And although collecting photographs of people’s various tights has nothing to do with visual communication I attempted to do rather simple and not very complex 3D type of my started collection myself…(sorry about the quality of the photographs in advance :-))
The actual type I was trying to use as a basis for this is called Lighthouse font and was designed by Måns Grebäck . (for more information please see his website:http://www.mawns.com/wordpress/) The before mentioned book’s full reference is: Jacquillat, A. & Vollauschek , T. (2011) The 3D Type Book.
