Typographic Desks

On our theme of typography this week, we’ve found another unique place to incorporate words and letters.

Discovered on Benoit Challand‘s portfolio, Fold Yard desks would be the perfect addition to any company’s office. Even if you aren’t involved with design, you can appreciate these typographic desks as an alternative to the regular cubicle lifestyle!

Your desk could be its own unique shape, plus be part of a curated layout – for instance a letter of the company name, or each employee’s initial. The possibilities are endless!

Ice Typography

We are big fans of typography (don’t believe us? Just check out our Pinterest account).

If you’re with us on that, you’ll love this ice typography by Nicole Dextras! It is exactly what you think, words written with letters made from ice. What makes it extra cool is that the words suit the locations, and the locations range from the Yukon River to downtown Toronto.

As well, the letters are 3D, different colors, and vary in size from 8 feet tall to 18 inches tall. Visit her website to learn more about the process she took to create her typography!

DNA Font

If DNA is art and typography is art then surely DNA can be typography right?

It seems so.

Scientists at Harvard Medical School developed a font made from strands of DNA. Each strand of DNA is folded into rectangular tiles that are then used like pixels to create letter and numbers.

The font was created to demonstrate how DNA could be fabricated into micro-structures for future application in nano-fabrication or drug delivery.

Of course the side benefit is now researchers have the ultimate way to pass notes back and forth.

The font is being dubbed DNA Sans or DNAlphabet but we prefer Hel-gattaca.
