What type of shapes are out there?

deep_space1

Having read about the ‘new’ Hubble I found a set of four new pictures that where ‘just asking’ to be used. Using Big Boned typace from Network Osaka I made a set of four posters, called Deep Space. Hope you like it.

These four images are among the first observations made by the new Wide Field Camera 3 aboard the upgraded NASA Hubble Space Telescope. The image shows NGC 6302, a butterfly-shaped nebula surrounding a dying star.

These four images are among the first observations made by the new Wide Field Camera 3 aboard the upgraded NASA Hubble Space Telescope. The image gives viewers a panoramic portrait of a colorful assortment of 100,000 stars residing in the crowded core of Omega Centauri, a giant globular cluster.

What’s it worth?

worth_it

It’s still so worth it!

After a long time feeling drain out and with nothing to say here, I’ve found this amazing typeface from my friend Network Osaka. I really admire his work (you can check it here) and this typeface just ‘made’ me do something with it. I shall experiment with it a lot more. I just hope that you don’t judge BIG BONED typeface by this work and give it a go yourself. It’s shared for download on Network Osaka’s site.

Simply smile… it helps

We believe that, most of the times, it’s the simple way of adressing problems and the simple solutions that give you the best results. To make this statement we’ve made this simple poster. Hope you like it.

Freedom and Bobby McGee

I’ve always liked this sentence from the song ‘Me and Bobby McGee’. I really love the version that Janis Joplin sang. So here it is a small type and grid play I’ve made from this song. Hope you like it. Please comment 😉

At the speed of light

speed_light

My cousin Pedro Sá Correia is a great photographer. Some days ago he was showing me his latest works and I had one of those ‘speed of light’ inspirations from one of his pictures. This is the final result.

You can check his work here and, who knows, you might be also as inspired as I was. Thank you Pedro for your great work and to be so kind as to let me ‘spoil’ your amazing picture with some type.

Trial&Error

trial-and-error

Here at whatype we’ve been working on a new project. It’s going to be a digital publication, the idea behind is that each issue tells one or two stories at the same time. We’ll invite both a photographer or illustrator and a writer and give them complete creative liberty to work as they like. By making them work together we expect that sometimes the ‘visual side’ will decide on the story to be told, other times it will be the other way around. Either way they can do as they please. In the end whatype will design the story and publish it on-line, as a book/magazine.

Here is an example of the experiments we’ve been doing for this project. We are mixing Helvetica with Garamond and loving it. Hope you like this also. Keep posted for further news.
