Four Fifths Design

Inspiration for the Creative Mind

Recent UI Work

I’ve recently been quite busy working on a video editing interface. It’s based around the familiar concept of clipping video footage in order to showcase, commentate, and package video into useful pieces that are to be used specifically in sports games. Without getting too into detail, as it’s still early in the process, I thought I’d share a few small shots of what it’s beginning to look like.

8teeSix

8teesix dedicates itself in bringing out strong, simple and clean graphic t shirts. Based in the South of the UK, 8teesix combines the appreciation for custom typography and love of t shirts. The designs focus on being displayed solely for on shirts, unlike many t lines. Here’s a peak at the growing line:

 

Type Made Up

Designer: Charles Williams

This personal typography project by Charles Williams is certainly a fantastic piece to admire. What looks to initially be foam core board or a similar material, is transformed into strategically dissected segments. These segments, as they are raised and layered from the original board, create connecting forms that show off depth and initiate shadows while cohesively making for letterforms and sentence. The segments are diagonal in direction, and generally seem to be evenly cut in width. When complete, the composition shows off the statement “This Is Made Up.” Whether it’s immediately readable probably depends on the viewer. But regardless, the attention to detail and the application of color make this work something to stop and stare at.

Lemniscate Typography

Designer: Rosy Gorolova

Rosy Gorolova has created a masterful work of art with the Lemniscate series and typeface. I wouldn’t necessarily say that the way in which these letterforms are created is totally unique, but I will say that the meticulous detail in these lines is pretty incredible. The slight wavering of the lines in specific pieces, particularly the numbers, is really fascinating. It helps contrast the beautiful synchronization of the rest of the lines making up the majority. Lemniscate certainly evokes movement, liquidity, and evolution – three of the most fundamental notions in typography itself.

Architectural 3D Typography

Designer: Chris LaBrooy

This series of work by Chris LaBrooy contains beautifully composed typography. Letterforms become architecture, while the architecture shapes the letterforms. With apparent inspiration rooted in found objects and imaginative material, and a keen sense of color, balance, and composition, we’re provided concepts for spaces that speak to us through our language while retaining their necessary function, that being shelter and various types of open and closed space.
