Out With The Old
O.W.T.O. is a typographic installation that was painted onto an old studio floor before reclaimed parquet flooring was installed.
Gordon Young, an artist that focuses on installations for public facilities, was hired in 2009 to help with the redesign of the Crawley Library in West Sussex, England. In collaboration with Why Not Associates, Gordon Young carved various book passages into 14 solid oak columns. A survey of the members of the Crawley Library determined which passages were carved into what he calls his “Typographic Trees”.
I’m writing a manifesto. It’s about hand lettering, handwriting, the decay of both, the digital revolution, making a mark, leaving a trace, abstract expressionism, Sherlock Holmes, graphic design, the ballpoint pen and much more. It’s actually a great analysis of everything I’ve been blogging the past year.
That’s also way I’m blogging (sometimes for the second time) some articles about the subject(s).
After some research of the abstract expressionist movement back to hand lettering in graphic design!
