Hidden Treasures: the LOST BAUHAUS TYPEFACES

If you do not hear about this project, I invite you to read al the story here. While in Adobe Max last year, Erik Spiekermann presents a wood version of one of the Bauhaus typeface, with a workshop to print them! It was, of course, one of my favorite part of the Max 2018 market. You can find the fonts on Adobe font (which replaces Typekit by the way). Did you know that all the Adobe font are now included with your subscription? Pretty amazing.

It was a pleasure to meet Erik in person, and the next step would be to visit the p98a workshop. Discover it in this article.

For the love of (French) paper! 

Like past years, French papers did an amazing job with some free goodies for all attendees! Gold hot foil posters and Draplin postcards!

MAKE 100 / Mr Cup Letterpress coasters

 I discover letterpress printing 10 years ago. It basically changed my way of designing. My first items were my own business cards, and soon I created a set of 4 coasters to explore the possibilities. Limited (as all my products) they are sold out for a long time.

With first printing, I create a prototype of a wood box for a set of 8 coasters, but it never goes further, only 5 were made to see how it looks like. To celebrate the past 10 years, I decided to reprint the original coasters, create a set of 4 more coasters and an edition of 100 with the wood box as the part of the Kickstarter MAKE 100 project.

This year cover is designed by me! After 4 years asking worldwide designers to design it, I have this one in mind since I design the Ephemerid playing cards earlier this year.
For every edition, I ask graphic designer and typographer to create unique font work. This year edition will feature unique designs by Nick Misani, Ginger Monkey Tom Lane , Dan Grett, Peter Voth, Kelsy Stromski, Christian Watson 1924.us, Tuyet Duyet, Reno Orange and more. Some of them are still working on the design and they will be shown as soon as possible!
