Fontsmith type design director ⁦‪Phil Garnham‬⁩ recently worked with students at ⁦‪Middlesex University‬⁩ to design brand-new typefaces inspired by 'The Future Starts Here' exhibition at the V&A. I particularly loved Antenna by Iveta Rihova. ‘The font is created out of fluid, organic, free form lines, representing tree ring pattern as well as signal transmission. Whispering trees converted into letterforms with abstract approach shall bring the world of nature and technology together.’

Amsterdam-based artist and illustrator Karan Singh and New York-based graphic designer Zuzanna Rogatty, explored the bonfire night, where fireworks are lit and crowds gather to marvel. Prior to the project, Karan had been drawn to Zuzanna’s work for its forms “so full of character”, particularly within her typographic work where the designer transforms any old letterform into a fluid, bold vector of wonder. With Zuzanna an equal fan of Karan’s brightly composed patterned work, the pair set to work.
