Paper Type Experiments
Excited (and anxious) to be speaking at Typo San Francisco this afternoon. I used the talk as an excuse to try out something that I’ve long intended to play with: paper lettering! Many of the text-only slides in my presentation needed some additional attention. So for each one, I came up with a different, semi-legible strategy for making a different type of paper lettering.
I wanted to confine myself to using the form of paper to render the image of the type, rather than using paper as a substrate for ink. While I did break that rule once, most of the lettering experiments are white-on-white… working within the parameters of “paper-only”. (The cheater-one that uses ink, relies on the form of a block of paper for the ink to display properly, so its really in the same spirit as the others… promise!)
Here are some of my favorites:
