In 2010, I was commisioned to design and develop a unique typeface for the new gardens of Singapore, “Gardens by the Bay”, reflecting the shapes and forms found in nature and traditional Malay script. The family includes a light and a bold, as well as their alternate versions with swash capitals. Commissioned by Thomas Matthews (London).
“Dark Lens” is a book of photography by Cédric Delsaux, who has integrated Star Wars characters and vehicles into stark urban, industrial – but unmistakably earthbound – environments. A typeface has been especially designed for this book, to fit this very special atmosphere. It contains echos of the famous Star Wars logo by its broad width and geometric shapes, but is firmly contemporary thanks to sharp details.
