Paper craft // sign-module

Posted in Lettering, Typography by kentaro terajima on 04/07/2012

This book-like paper craft kit contains a frame structure, black modules and yellow modules.

Changing black and yellow modules makes a letter.

It covers all of capital letters, lower case letters and numbers. (even more creative signs are possible!)

The kit is not built, so first people who bought it have to build the all structure and modules, then can make letters. (with friendly instructions)

It was a project with Raquel Quevedo as Armandos.

Binding experiment: Abend specimen

Posted in Book binding, Editorial Design, Typography by kentaro terajima on 14/02/2012

It was a project in bookbinding course.

The idea was to experiment the relation of expression/perception of pages and bookbinding.

The book has 2 parts; one part has folded paper which includes a phrase crossing 8 pages, and another part has normal booklet bindings.

I tried to express a sequence with a continuation in first part with a folding paper and a separation in second part with normal booklets.

I made a white and a black book used different paper and print but the contents are same.

Font supplement: Orator supplement

Posted in Typography by kentaro terajima on 11/08/2011

Small case letters and old style figures to set with a monospaced typeface Orator.
Although the concept of Orator was originally made to set with Caps and small caps to have clear letter shapes for IBM typewriter, against its concept, the idea of this project is to set in small case letters to use for some sentences, more than words. We don’t read so much text set with small caps nowadays, so it can be difficult to read a text set only in small caps even it has clear letter shapes.

Original Slanted style is literally just slanted. Slanted letters in this supplement are refined shapes.
