I love this tumblr: Languages as Symbols, nice collection, can’t stop browsing..
H.N. Werkman was a Dutch artist, typographer and printer. He was a member of the artists’ group De Ploeg (“The Plough”), for which he printed posters, invitations and catalogues. From 1923 to 1926, he produced his own English-named avant-garde magazine The Next Call, which, like other works of the period, included collage-like experimentation with typefaces, printing blocks and other printers’ materials. He also used stenciling and stamping to achieve unique effects. He would distribute the magazine by exchanging it for works by other avant-garde artists and designers throughout Europe.

His work above consists solely of typographic elements.

Daniël Maarleveld is an Amsterdam based graphic designer, he graduated at the Rietveld in 2007. I love how he’s endlessly searching for flaws in tools and how to use those flaws to create something new (and beautiful!!).

A couple of months ago I found this cardboard with these A V W and M signs on them..
..it inspired me to make a typeface: A_TYPE
Just for the fun of it. Let’s see where it’ll go from here, I’ve had many ideas and sketches for typefaces but never really finished one, never got to the point where you call it a ‘font’..

Blaqk is a collaboration between 2 designers from Athens Greece, Greg Papagrigoriou and Simeκ. A mix with illusive forms and letters (typography-calligraphy) in strict shapes.
…or you might puzzle the book
This was a school assignment, we got a little book with 64 blank pages and the assigment was to fill it with whatever you wanted. I decided to make a puzzle, so the bookmaking process is entirely reversed from a finished bounded book to a bunch of loose ripped out pages. Once you’ve layed out the puzzle you’ll be able to read life lessons and wise quotes.
