A self-initiated typographic experiment by designer Tien-Min Liao, Handmade Type explores the relationships between upper-case letters and lower-case letters, recording the transformation between them.
"In this experiment, I drew shapes with ink on one or both of my hands, manipulating my gestures into the corresponding shape to signify an upper-case letter. Then, using the same shape on my hands, I manipulated my gesture or changed the perspective through which the shape is viewed in order to transform the upper-case letter to a lower-case of the same letter. Removing or redrawing the darkened shape on my hands is not allowed in the experiment. The only way to make the model transform from an upper-case to a lower-case (or vice versa) is changing the gestures or the perspectives."
I was immediately excited to share this, not only for the awesome type, but for the beautiful illustrative animations as well. Now that's hands on design! Find more great work and cool inspiration from your favorite shopper marketing agency at birdsonggregory.com.
