Intercut experimental wood type system
0

Before graduating from MassArt last May, I spent a semester (and then some) working on an experimental wood typeface design / production project. The project was recently selected to be featured in a Contemporary Letterpress exhibition, so I figured it would be a good time to put all my process together for others to see.

I have found your site before. It was intriguing to me that there are someone who actually like letters carved in wood; is interested on them beyond their forms, not digital, where they are more then a idea. They ARE, not only as letter forms : They are tangible. Exist, and occupy their own physical space.

Praise!

It inspired me to do some designs using the negative shapes of type.
I love it.

Hi Nick,
I love this project of yours. I really hope it gets put to use, I can see it used for upmarket posters/signage in a store like FRESH & WILD, a campanion to the chalk board lettering.
best of luck with it.

Saw these on Flickr last night, Nick. I am very impressed with both the product and your presentation of it. When will you start selling prints?

Beautiful...

I am proud to say that I live in JP with you! :D

EDIT: I just realized that I have one of your letterpress posters from the show last summer.
