Giving “Experimental Typography” New Meaning

This rather cerebral study of typography by Austrian designer/sculptor/artist Andreas Scheiger is quite fitting for Halloween. Taking inspiration from noted type designer Frederic W. Goudy´s “The Alphabet and Elements of Lettering,” and treating letters like organisms and typefaces as species, Scheiger created this amazing series, Evolution of Type. We’re fascinated by Scheiger’s surgical dissection and the sheer level of detail he achieves. Great concept and even better execution.

    That is the most creative typographical display I have ever seen.
