Fe2O3 Glyphs | Craig Ward and Linden Gledhill
Over the summer of 2015 I once again collaborated with pioneering typographer Craig Ward. This time in the creation of a unique, ornamental type system and an accompanying set of one-of-a-kind letterpress prints.
The project is now live and available for your support through Kickstarter: kickstarter.com/projects/mrcraigward/fe2o3-glyphs-a-conceptual-ornamental-type-system
To form the glyphs, a tiny amount of ferrofluid was placed between two glass plates and subjected to a combination of spinning vertical and horizontal magnetic fields. The result is an array of complex hieroglyphics and shapes - each one as unrepeatable as a snowflake - that simultaneously call to mind ancient indigenous markings or symbols from science fiction.
These complex symbols were traced as vectors and cast as a moveable type printing system, combinations of which will be used to create a series of unique, one of a kind, letterpress prints, where no arrangement of glyphs is ever repeated. To bring the project full circle, these prints will be created using a mix of actual ferrofluid and pure Pantone Black.
