Three Type Designers to Look Out For
More than 100 artists, photographers, and designers have already had the pleasure of creating their very own version of a 100FOR10 book, and we would like to introduce you to three of them who have focused primarily on type design.
100FOR10 is an art project initiated by Melville Brand Design in Munich, Germany. Print is dead—is never dead. To publish a book is a bad idea—is a very good idea. 100for10 is a series of art books, of which each issue contains 100 black and white pages and costs only 10.– Euro. 100for10 is distributed world wide! Robert Frank said during an exposition at the Münchner Akademie der Bildenden Künste “Cheap, quick, and dirty, that’s how I like it.”
Matteo Bertin: Image Based Types
Matteo Bertin is an Italian art director who wants to design experiences to improve communication between people. He is passionate about experimenting with typefaces, which is how his new book Image Based Types came about.
Chris Campe: Alphabets
Writing and creating have always been a part of Chris Campe’s life. She started out as an apprentice at a bookshop and wrote book recommendations for the local newspaper before deciding to become a designer. With her Hamburg-based design studio All Things Letters she finally found a way to combine all of her passions. Alphabets is a reflection of her daily work.
Petra Dočekalová: Sketchbook
Petra Dočekalová not only has finished her PhD thesis about new type forms, but has also been a member of the Briefcase Type Foundry team since 2013. Her Sketchbook for 100FOR10 consists of type styles, trials, and tests she encountered during her learning process. The book is intended to serve as a source of inspiration and can be modified or expanded as desired.
