“4D Typography is the result of intersectioning, in an orthogonal way in space, two extrusions of the same character, which allows the spectator to read it from, minimum, two different positions in space.
An observer searching to enjoy a particular architecture, is forced to move around and through it. The change in perspective generates new spaces in which light acts in different ways. In this case, it is the typography who makes the effort of abandoning its two dimensions to approach the architectural sense. It does not resign with a third dimension; a fourth one is necessary to complete the reading possibilities. By hanging the typography, the reader is allowed to surround the characters in order to understand all their shapes.”
HopeNet Fundraiser: Taste of Larchmont 2012
Last night I finished a set of prints requested by one of our favorite clients, HopeNet. These folks (mostly volunteers) are everyday heroes for a cause that’s dear to my heart. Help support HopeNet, an interfaith and community effort to eliminate hunger and homelessness in metro Los Angeles.
Designer Annex, of New Zealand, has designed these lovely frocks from vintage maps of the world. Unfortunately, you can’t wear the dress…but according to her website, you can “hang [it] on your wall and dream of new adventures”. F*ck that, I’d absolutely try to put it on. Then, after I ripped it from doing something so stupid, I’d hang it on the wall (so you can’t see the rip, natch) and would then dream of other ways to get the damn dress on. Because these are way too cute to leave on a wall.
Here’s more from her website:
Travel the world or visit a favourite city with maps made from vintage printed maps. Hang on your wall and dream of new adventures or recount fond memories. Each dress is handmade and unique. Approx 90cm long and 60 cm wide.
Dresses are $195, bags $80, please email for more images

Adorable is as adorable does.
I love this inspired assembly of concept, design, and fun execution. If you can’t play with your food, might as well play with your clothes. :]
