About Face: Trash As Type Treasure

Househappy —  April 30, 2014 — Leave a comment

British designer Dion Star tasked himself with an unusual project: create an original typeface using trash found on a beach in Cornwall, England.

His methodology?

• Pick up any piece of Marine Debris that is smaller than an A4 sheet of paper. (No bottles, cans, plastic bags, crisp packets or chocolate wrappers).
• No manipulation of the objects.
• Stop collecting when I have all 26 letters.
• Document all that I find.
