Love Letters From NOLA

Really enjoying the graphic/typographic design and photography in this project.

Denoising Field Recordings

The record documents the attempt at using denoising techniques on various field recordings of trains, streets, swimminghalls and public transport.

Denoising Field Recordings is released as a limited edition of see-through 12″ vinyl. The all-white cover of the sleeve is printed exclusively with varnish.

Lovely work all around by Hans Renzler.

Typography In the Wild

My evening reading material has arrived via post.

Brownstone

One of my favorite type designers, Alejandro Paul, is at it again. Check out the details over at Veer.

"One design sparks another. As Alejandro Paul experimented with the strokes and curves of the monoline script Business Penmanship, he discovered interesting new forms and shapes that didn’t fit the Spencerian theme of that typeface. These forms simmered in Ale’s subconscious over the next three years, during which time he visited New York City, pored over rare type specimen books in the New York Public Library, and explored Brooklyn’s neighborhoods.

Brownstone, the face born from these explorations, is an original 21st-century design, yet one subtly infused with historical and cultural references — keen observers might spot influences from decorative typefaces of 19th-century foundries. And just as faces from that era were influenced by contemporary architecture, the frames included with Brownstone echo the ornate iron railings of Park Slope’s row houses. (There’s also a slight 1960s vibe to Brownstone, of novelty swash-sans photocompositing faces, that can be played up at your discretion.)”
