stacking type.

i know most of you have probably already sighed over this image from design*sponge, but i just had to share it here as well. most graphic designers fall in love with type at some point in their schooling/career, and find ways to incorporate it in their world outside of the computer. this is a very lovely example from the studio of mike perry and anna wolf. (btw, they have a lovely home as well!) this image makes me dream of piling type up on our fireplace to create a 3d word jumble or devoting an entire wall to painting random letters from a printout of the entire helvetica family.

or just look at this gorgeous space from somethingshidinginhere. love love love the western type blown-up huge and painted in a lighter shade. i would love to do this in our entry way, with a huge "hello!". maybe when we find out that we'll be staying in lubbock a little longer, i can convince doug to let do some more extravagant things to our home.

nice! it makes you wonder which comes first the love of type, or the designer. Maybe we all loved type even before we were "officially" designers!

you know, that's a good point brandi. i don't guess i really have thought about it that way. i've always had some fascination with type and letterforms (used to hand-draw type over and over when i was younger) but never really thought that it might have led to me wanting to be a designer. i'll have to think about that some more...
