Pretty Sweet XOXOX
For my participation, at the BRF Enterprises exhibition in WORM S/ash Gallery, are these typespecimen made. The prints combine two typefaces:
Verknipt - This is made during an initiative from Dennis Koot. I’ts about hacking the Helvetica font by playing with the rules, readability and functions of Helvetica. See all submissions here.
Labrini - This typeface originated as a counter-reaction to Verknipt. Super round, smooth and without any breaks.
I made five riso printed type specimen posters with the title Pretty Sweet XOXOX. The smooth characters from Labirin are clashing with the harsh lines from Verknipt. Just like a relationship, right?
