BAUHAUS Hajo Rose »The Forgotten Artist« (for widescreen displays)
This Wallpaper 1920x1200 I dedicate to Hans Joachim Rose, a »forgotten« Bauhaus artist.
Typefaces in use:
The striking typeface »Velvet« designed by Mike Jarboe (Reserves).
Velvet is a heavy rounded block retro face inspired by the typeset album covers of the protopunk rock band The Velvet Underground.
Stylistically, Velvet’s extreme angled terminals exude a sense of tension and irreverance, contrasting the subtle rounded block letter forms.
The monoline Bauhaus typeface »Form« designed by Rick Banks (F37).
Form: After looking at Armin Hoffman’s Die Gute Form poster and Herbert Bayer’s universal typeface I constructed an alphabet based on their letterforms. Inspired by Wim Crouwel’s Soft Alphabet, I constructed a grid to create the modular alphabet and programmed very tight letterspacing into the font lending itself to the style of Die Gute Form.
