Revolutionary Script and Typography

¶ While reading again Fred Smeijers' Counterpunch, the author stated that the humanistic writing was a philosophical trend and therefore an artificial form of writing by breaking a cycle and by returning to an ancient era. You may assert that the humanistic writing was the first attempt of post-modernism.

1. Was there another post-modernistic attempt before the·Quattrocento·with a breaking point?

2. How would you consider William Morris' typographic leaning of going back to the humanistic origin? The second post-modernistic attempt?

Sharing: 2011 Typograhic Wall Calendar


I thought this would be the right place to share my project:

I'm working on a typographic wall calendar, made of two thousand and eleven keyboard keys. Last year I did one made of 2010 keys.(http://typophile.com/node/65810)

This year I turned the design into a Kickstarter project. Kickstarter is a public funding platform for design and art projects.
Here is the link to the project-website with a little video: http://kck.st/20eleven

I also was invited to a lengthy interview about my design process:

On my website i wrote a bit more in depth about the piece:

Thanks - digital calligraphy


I would like to show you a work I did using my Wacom tablet and Inkscape.
There was once a thread about calligraphy software and I am sure Inkscape is one of the best. It works different then CorelDraw and Illustrator but I think is more close to the traditional way except the strokes can be rearranged if necessary.

And a detail at actual size.

I would like to see your comments, critiques and advices so please feel free to post them.

A bigger version of it (1600 x 1200 px) can be downloaded from my site.

Thank you very much.
