Archives for posts with tag: 3D typography

It’s no secret that we love admiring typographic projects (here and here and here). When we came across this gem from German studio/duo FOREAL (previously featured here), which harkens back to childhood memories filled with cartoon references, we were immediately drawn in. We absolutely love this series and the sheer variety FOREAL was able to employ. While each letterform is vastly different, they all work nicely as a set. As for the 36 Days of Type design challenge that sparked this series in the first place, FOREAL absolutely killed it. Quite simply, #designenvy. This is just a sampling, be sure to check out the entire collection on FOREAL’s Instagram (here).

Who says typography has to be pristine? Sometimes rough, fractured figures fit the bill. And we love this three-dimensional typeface from Auckland, New Zealand-based designer Scott Wheeler. The self-taught Wheeler designed these splendidly shattered letterforms as a self initiated project, but we’d like to see them applied out in the world because they’re too good not to. Though each figure is meant to be imperfect, we appreciate Wheeler’s attention to detail, like the subtle reflections and shadows. These fragmented forms really come together. Well done.

There are many little pleasures in life, and for us, two of those are sweets and typography (in no particular order). So when we stumbled upon this delicious work by Brazilian art director Ivan Loos, our day got a little brighter. Commissioned by Latin American commercial baking giant Bimbo for its Ana Maria brand, these custom typefaces were developed to appeal to a younger demographic by mimicking filling flavors (chocolate, vanilla and strawberry) for their cakes. Loos’s 3D work is flawless. We love that the characters are not perfect, but reflect the true mass and movement of these decadent delights. Clever name, too! Great work all around.

3D graphics have really improved (and continue to) exponentially in recent years. Buenos Aires based design studio Six & Five, established by art directors/designers Andy Reisinger and Ezequiel Pini, really capitalize on such advancements in compelling ways. Their approach is really refined and thoughtful, and based on the fundamentals of good design. Their typographic treatments are particularly compelling, pushing the boundaries of computer generated imagery and reality. This project for the Abelina typeface (designed by fellow Argentinian Yanina Arabena, and available here) is really something, and reminiscent of some other typographic wonders (here and here and here). Their project entitled “Ride” is not too shabby either. These guys are masters!
