Evolution of Type: Fossilized Typography

Tuesday 04.02.2013 , Posted by

Evolution of Type- 1

Remember making “fossils” in Science class? Austrian designer Andreas Scheiger takes that old lab up a notch with this fantastic series of typography. Inspired by the 1918 book, The Alphabet and Elements of Lettering by Frederic W. Goudy which explains how language went from sounds to recognizable symbols and letters, Scheiger started a project called Evolution of Type. In this unique typography, he combines lettering with anatomy and paleontology to show an imaginary biological evolution, with “preserved” letters in amber, muscles and bones composing a segment of a letter sculpture, and now fossilized letters using plasticine, chicken bones, wood, water colors and gypsum.

A Font as Sharp as Barbed Wire: The Devils Rope

Monday 01.24.2011 , Posted by


Using the material that tamed the wild west, designer Andrew Effendy has created an artistic font using steel wire. Pulled across two wooden posts, the wires are twisted to resemble the spiny fencing, with longer strands at the barbed sections forming the letters A through Z. The font has an undeniably sinister look to it. With such an iconic form, the work could easily be interpreted as a commentary on language barriers or how the written word and it’s form can either help or hinder dialogue. For more on Effendy’s projects see his website at drewfnd.com.

Andrew Effendy now works with us as a full-time graphic designer at Column Five, our parent company (columnfivemedia.com) [Read more...]
