PAPER TO SCREEN ❦ »A Paradigm Shift« Grungy Version (for widescreen displays)

Wallpaper 1920x1200.


The beautiful »Newspaper Headings« which I used for this Wallpaper, I »recovered« from the following old »Foundry Specimen Books«:


Keystone Type Foundry (1906)

American Type Founders Co. (1906)

Barnhart Bros. & Spindler Type Founders

Palmer & Rey Type Founders (1887)


The typefaces which I used for the lettering in the center are:


Svetoslav Simov’s (Fontfabric) clean, elegant, sans serif typeface »Code Pro«.


Code Pro is a font family inspired by the original Sans Serif fonts like Avant Garde or Futura, but with a modern twist. It is clean, elegant and straight-to-the-point. Code font is applicable for any type of graphic design—web, print, motion graphics, etc.—and perfect for t-shirts and other items like posters and logos.


Rui Abreu’s (Fountain) balanced, modern slab serif typeface »Foral Pro«.


Foral Pro is a modern slab serif, organic and balanced, with harmonized proportions and polished forms. It is a eight-weight typeface, ranging from Light to Extra Bold with matching italics. It come with Small Caps and a wide range of OpenType features, allowing extensive and versatile use.
