AN ODE TO TYPE

Inspiration often comes from the simplest things. In this case, typography is what sparked the ideas for these ingenious conceptual posters by graphic designer Tom Davie. I can't get over how fun these are. I mean, really. His take on the various font names and juxtaposition of images is beyond clever. The print above “is meant to reference the clean look of modern design, while also utilizing the Modern serif typeface, Modern No. 20. The chair is a molded plastic design from the 1970s, with the “Modern” type drawn and painted onto it by hand,” he explains. All the prints are amazing, but his creative process behind each of the them is quite fantastic as well. So I you want to see more of his work (or buy his prints) and learn how they came to live, you must visit his site here.
