Disappearing type?
0

I am working on a school project on a photo magasine with the theme of Disappearance.

I am looking for a font that somehow can have some connection with the theme dissapearance.
Maybe a very minimal or experimantal font that plays with the illusion of dissapperance….
anyone have any tips?
would really appreciate it! :)

What format will this be? The first thing that comes to mind is blind embossing.

Have a look at FF You can read me, where parts of the letters are diappearing, but the typeface itself stays quite visible.

Yes blind embossing came to my mind too.

Or perhaps you might try something like this type: (WORN) where there is such a large contrast between thick/thin that the thins disappear.

Thanks guys :)

pennANDink: I really like the the WORN typeface , do you know where it's possible to buy it?

speter: That sound like a good idea, but unfortunatly it is a school assignment without any budget, so I'm limited to print.

How about a typeface that's not there?

thanx guys.

I think the UMBRA type kind of symbolises that it´s already gone, and not disappearing.. but maybe I could do some experimemts with taking a typeface like that and making only some of it "dissappear".

pennANDink: I found another typeface that´s free that works with the same kind of principles... :)

Perhaps Substance.1?

Careful use of History will give you the same possibilites you get with Worn, and a lot more.

Maybe go with type that is actually disappearing from the world, losing it's relevance etc? Ok probably not, but I thought I'd throw it in anyway. Good luck with your project.

BasDirks: That´s a good idea, but maybe a little bit too abstract for this project. Could be a fun thing to work with on another occasion.. maybe next assignment should be working on which classic typefaces are dissapearing and why. Maybe a re-design/uppdate project. :p thanx
