This decorative typeface is an extrapolation of the Bodini Poster font featuring beautiful patterns and textures within the spaces that were formerly solid shapes. After developing the design digitally, laser-cut 3mm plywood letter-forms were mounted to wooden blocks. The letter elements were then typeset by London letterpress shop New North Press, to produce a limited edition poster.
Nigel Bents, Paul Oakley and Jonny Holmes collaborated on the design at Chelsea College of Art & Design. As Holmes explains on his website, the project is “an example of a digital start leading to an analogue finish.”
