Novo Typo’s Bixa, a digital multi-colored font designed for the web, leaves the computer and transforms into an analogue wooden typeface. The Typewood project shows the entire process: from type design, to the production of the wooden type with a hypermodern CNC milling technique, to the testing and printing on an antique letterpress. This project defines modern techniques and re-invents old techniques.
I was asked to design a poster for the presentation of the project at the Grafisch Werkcentrum Amsterdam only using the new analogue wooden typeface. Here are some pictures of the process and the final result.
