When the Department of Design at Japan’s Tama Art University challenged students to create new typefaces without the aid of their computers, 20-year-old Mayuko Kanazawa began scratching her head… and came up with a hair-brained scheme.

Designer Dominique Falla submitted this beautiful string art installation for the Positive Posters competition, creating the words “We Are All Part Of The Same Thing” out of the negative space between colorful strings wrapped around nails. The thread color moves gradually from hue to hue as you read the words, and gives the illusion of an ombre effect with the overlapping strings.

HandpaintedType is a project that is dedicated to preserving the typographic practice of street painters around India. These painters, with the advent of local DTP (Desktop Publishers) shops, are rapidly going out of business with many of them switching to the quicker, cheaper but uglier vinyls. Many painters have given up their practice altogether.The project involves documenting the typefaces of road side painters across India and digitizing it so that it serves as a resource for present and future generations.
