Book Review: Type Player 2

July 28th, 2011

If you’re a typography fiend who loves the unexpected, you’ll want a copy of Type Player 2. Shunning the boring and predictable, the featured designers look to unconventional mediums to enliven type creations, playing with dimension, perspective, and motion. Sometimes the designers literally create type designs out of thin air – one project uses photo documentation of light in motion to form a T, while another manipulates the shape of the sky between skyscrapers to capture letters in the negative spaces.

Unusual materials used to create type design include Rubik’s cubes, feathers, electrical cords, and used plastic bags. Indeed, if you’re looking for inspiration, the each project is sure to ignite your imagination.
