Bet the person behind the camera wasn’t planning this for the photoshoot, unless… Unless it’s an inter planetary fire ray?
We here at the International Printing Museum seek to rescue a collection of approximately 100 full fonts of antique Ludlow Typecasting matrices, catalog & organize the fonts into our working collection & digitize Ludlow Type Specimen books with notes on available fonts for letterpress projects.
Along with the Museum’s other metal, wood type fonts, these matrices will be available for casting type to be used by museum patrons, graphic designers & letterpress printers nationally for all kinds of projects including letterpress poster and business card printing, invitation and greeting card printing projects and creative jewelry making and art projects.
We will also develop and offer training and classes on Ludlow operation and maintenance to ensure Ludlow’s legacy.
The success of the project would make this the largest active collection of hot metal type in the world available to the public. That’s where we need you!
It often seems that the cool, and practical ideas, are the ones not fully developed or are in concept mode. I think the Bright Blind is a brilliant idea, and I would buy one in a heartbeat. In fact I WAS ready to order one until I discovered they are only currently being made to order for several thousand dollars.
I hope they can start mass producing these soon as I will be first to buy one. Just not for $2000. You can leave a suggestion for a price you would be happy to pay for this.
I have 2-3 copies of the #3 issue of 8 Faces to giveaway. In order to enter please just leave your full name, and a brief comment below with some form of contact information. The only requirement is that you RT this post at some point this week.
I’ll announce the random winners sometime next week.
ThisisCollate defies the usual thumbnail grid based gallery style and opts for full page design inspiration.
Collate isn’t updated like 1000 times a day, but check back every day or so and you should find something new.
I just love the slow, perfectly smooth and methodical scroll slide up/down of the web page just like a perfectly designed and constructed drawer, loo seat, cassette tape cover, car door etc.
Am quite a fan of the existing/old green More4 logo designed by Spin—also on LogoStack—and brand identity so will be interesting to see how ManvsMachine plan to make this new logo work as part of the TV ident.
As a standalone logo I am not so sure right now; pretty colours are nice and all, but time will tell how it is worked in around the overall TV ident. Can’t help but feel that E looks a little lost whereas with the existing logo each letter was neatly contained.
Of course too soon to really cast opinions until one is able to see the whole identity in action.
It does seem a little odd to me that the logo would be released so early on without the supporting identity to… support it especially a logo that ideally needs context to be fully appreciated. I guess there is a plan afoot, or the plan is to see what the general feedback is on the logo? Trial by trial?
Mekkanika by Riccardo Sabatini will likely blow you away. I can’t imagine how long it would take for just one letter, but the whole alphabet and numerals 0-9? I know block components were used, but even so. Beyond incredible.
Need to visit his Behance page as there are a number of supporting images and animations.
