Type gone mad? At first glance it
may look like a keyboard has exploded
across this shelf, but actually this is
superbly organized and information
design at its very best.
Wonksite Studio was commissioned to
create a wallpaper background for a
design studio. The most interesting and
adaptable solution was a typographic
treatment that personifies the designers
and their interests.
A closer look
Every element of type detail is
considered on a micro and macro
level. Close up, it has fascinating
detail, and from afar, it creates a
stunning texture.
The range of typefaces looks
extensive, but in fact there aren’t as
many as it may seem. Instead scale,
rotation, weights, and layout help
give the piece a very ragged, busy,
and maximalist feel.
