Handmade Type

Last week I posted about an artist who created type through the use of shadows. I think it is important to see how other artists are experimenting with typography in order to gain a new and different perspective. This week I found a designer who explores the relationships between upper and lowercase letters while recording the transformation between them. She does this by painting the letterforms on her hands and arms and manipulating the gesture to create the uppercase, lowercase, or italic version of the letter. There's a short video you can watch here:
