'Helvetica Live!' poster

...formal intersections between the famous Helvetica letters and various object silhouettes. Consciously ignoring "logical" context, I was influenced by Dadaist methods and contemporary virtual hybridizations of animals and human beings. These typo hybrids suggest a more playful and humorous attitude to typography, a field that often suffers from an unjust reputation of an overly strict and serious one.

This project is also featured in Oded Ezer: The Typographer‘s Guide to the Galaxy to be published by Gestalten in May 2009.
