Beton Numerals Submission Deadline Prolonged

For the ones who are already waiting for the Numerals Exhibition. We decided to prolong the submission-time until thursday due to organizing difficulties and new ideas how to present your creations. We already received 25 numbers. We still accept your submissions. We know that there are still some of you out there who are either to vain, self-critical, telling themselves not to find the time or really couldn’t. Here is your chance to make us and yourself happy by giving us your number!

The Cage N°1

7. January 2011

Typedesign needs time. Time is rare. So, we decided to take some time off and concentrate 2 days just on making type. Without any stress or obligations. And to get really into it, we locked us away, not from everything, but at least from fresh air (-> The Cage). We invited Igor Labudovic and Michael Hager to join our circle. For their diploma Igor and Michael created some great stencilfonts from which Igor released Brilliant, a humanstic stencil-textface with strong cuts. Currently both of them are working on new typefaces to finish the Meisterklasse at die graphische in Vienna.

Blades of Osaka

9. December 2010

Due to the fact, that yesterday I got a new cutter (I lose mine every half a year), I was researching a bit about the heritage of my ‘first choice’ cutting knives, charming named as Olfa cutters.
What I didn’t know about Olfa, is that they invented the break-off-the-blade system, and hey, it was inspired by a chocolate bar. So, if you like cutting and crafting, check out the Olfa site for some background information about the history of their knives, I think they do it in a really pleasant way. (Where does the name Olfa come from, and why are their knives yellow?)
