Hansje van Halem balances between typography and optical illusion

Hansje van Halem balances between typography and optical illusion | Communication design | Scoop.it

It’s tricky to implement the intricate tricks of an optical illusion in a book cover design without the finished product appearing slightly heavy-handed, but designer Hansje van Halem does it with poise and perfectionism. She’s worked as a freelance graphic designer since graduating from Amsterdam’s Gerrit Rietvield Academie in 2003 (as her About section explains) and her enjoyment of what others might find to be repetitive shines through in the illusory patterns in her portfolio.

Robin Good's curator insight, September 18, 2013 3:02 PM


Conceived and created by andré felipe back in 2008, Typo/Graphic Posters is a curated collection of "inspiring" quality posters with a strong focus on typography and expressive graphical compositions.


The works represented come from artists and graphic designers from all over the world and which "challenge type, colors and shapes to express a message".


For each selected author you can see an horizontally laid out collection of his visual posters, which can be clicked and enlarged, and commented via a Facebook plugin appearing at the end of the set. 

 


Comments. A great curated visual collection, where you can truly find inspiration at every step. Every single set included in it, has been rigorously vetted before being accepted. This is not something you can check, but if you look contained in this collection, you can tell right away that the quality you see is not fruit of an accident.


This type of content is so good and valuable, it stays evergreen even if it's not updated. 


When curating content, even if it is not of a visual nature, a curator should strive to achieve the same level of quality and long-lasting value of such collections.



Free to access.

Fold Yard by Benoit Challand: Large-scale typography turns into functional furniture

Fold Yard by Benoit Challand: Large-scale typography turns into functional furniture | Communication design | Scoop.it

French designer Benoit Challand gives new life to the open office system by converting desks into typography inspired cubicles. Every desk in his office is shaped as a different letter of the alphabet, transforming the archetypal  workspaces into large scale alphabetical sculptures.
Challand aims to change the monotonous image of the office by making the space more fun and surprising. The shapes remain abstract until viewed from above. By adding this modular element to the office, the multi-faceted designer enables us to combine both work and play.

The lines in any face tell an interesting story and choosing the right type will help you to tell your own.

Greg Andrade's curator insight, October 11, 2013 10:09 PM

This is typography 101. These are some of the typography basics I teach my students. There are many other good articles pertaining to all types of design from architecture, furniture and of course graphic design.
