typescapes

Typescape posters inspired originally by Wim Crouwel’s poster for Saura exhibition in Van Abbenmuseum in Eindhoven. I tried to express the three dimensional aspect of landscapes/cityscapes and how type usually can be seen in it - it’s there, you read it, but quite often you don’t pay too much attention to it or at least the formalities of it due to the amount of type you see all day long. Thus, there’s an aspect of type being there and not quite being there, seen but not seen, or at least not always read or understood or remembered. Something I’ve been thinking about recently when consciously trying to explore the type in my surroundings. What does it need for type to pop out, to really be paid attention to and to be remembered?
