TYPEWRITER HELVETICA BY JOHANNES KLEIN-REESINK
Last friday I posted an amazing preview of The Typewrite (On the 21st Century) and last night I found this typography quite randomly that continues with the typewriter theme now through a very rad typography. The Typewriter Helvetica is an amazing font made by Johannes Klein-Reesink, a 22 years old Münster, Germany based designer student whose idea of using actual parts of a typewriter is pretty cool, something that reminds me the work of Todd McLellan but this time used to create shapes and characters.
Although the idea of using parts of an object to create fonts it is very creative and singular for being a very familiar font, probably the most use nowdays which is Helvetica.
“My Idea was to write with my old typewriter, but not in the usual way!So I took my typewriter apart and arranged it back together in the style of “Helvetica Neue Bold”.
If you’re wonder if this particular typography is functional well judge by yourself, the last image is a quatoe of Wim Crouwel so you can see the final result and if it would work with you, I’d love to see this on prints with the gray background like the first image, wouldn’t you? Enjoy.
