Typographic tree sculpture

The striking, cracked trees, 14 in all, are situated throughout the library building and are installed vertically, flush to the floor and ceiling to resemble supporting, structural pillars. Each tree is, in fact, a real oak trunk and displays carved passages of text from literature within the library, the typeface of each passage chosen carefully to suit the nature of the text.

Space, the final font tier

KERN is a minimalist typography experience challenging you to precisely place a missing letter into a falling word while avoiding any unnecessary ligatures!

Type atrocity.

Michael Bojkowski's CD Covers

Michael Bojkowski's CD Covers

Criterion Box Art

"For film nerds like myself, the Criterion Collection is the crème de la crème.  Every title in their incredible catalog is restored to pristine picture and sound quality and usually boasts some of the best bonus features out there.

But what is really seals the deal is Criterion’s gorgeous box art.  Every DVD in the Criterion Collection sports a completely original box art design.  They must have some of the best in-house designers working today as their DVD packaging just can’t be beat.  Needless to say, this makes it especially hard for the DVD collector to resist."

An Ode to Criterion Box Art

I promise

Lumen invitation

Theis & Khan Architects designed a new mulit-faith center for worship in London called Lumen, The central feture within Lumen is the 'Shaft of Light' - an etherial, white rendered space which emulates a beam of light, holding a prayer room inside. It was this focus on rays of light which inspired the invitation design for the Lumen opening in late 2008.
