Schrift in Form 3
3 December, 2012

Typosition has done it again for the third installment of “Schrift in Form”. These exhibition series focuses on young type designer and the newest typefaces and, so far, has always been hosted by the Klingspor Museum in Offenbach.

The first exhibition in 2008, I was fortunate to help curate while working at Linotype, had the theme “40 designers under 40”.

In 2010 they did it again with the topic “Schriftgenuss” – the exhibited specimens were all of the designers’ favorite recipes. The best part was the catalog/specimen/cook book that resulted! You can see my submission here.

This time around the topic “Musik liegt in der Schrift” combines new type designs with music lyrics, album covers, concert posters, etc. Because who doesn’t like some music with their type?

Schrift in Form 2
21 September, 2010

I was honored to be invited by Peter and Tanja of Typosition to participate in the second “Schrift in Form”. Two A1 posters for each typeface/designer were submitted: first was the designer’s favorite recipe designed how they wished (with a new typeface), and the second was a poster simply showing the character set.

My submission pimping my still unfinished Gemma type family, was of “Sonja’s Weird Salad” (invented by Sonja, named by me). It’s awesome, really. It’s so good I want to share it with you. Try it out!

One small bit of advise: The quantities of ingredients are approximate. You may want to adjust them somewhat.
