London 2012: Reaching new heights!

A typographic mosaic portraing Cuban athlete Wilfredo Martinez. Inspired by the upcoming olympiad in London.

 

Typeface used is PF DIN, the richest version ever made of this classic beauty. Typeface design by Panos Vassiliou @ParachuteFonts.

 

Best viewed large.

Attention: Big file. (9000 x 11000 pixels = 30.0" x 36.7" @ 300 ppi)

Alternately you can zoom in to the high res (99 megapixels) file with Microsoft ZoomIt.

 

Made with custom developed scripts, hacks and lots of love, using my Mac, Synthetik Studio Artist, the Adobe Creative Suite and good music.
