New at Photo-Lettering: Sodachrome

PHOTO-LETTERING SODACHROME ANIMATION

Causing typographic classification experts to reach for, then throw out their copy of Vox, Sodachome is a chromatic concoction of two parts serif forming one part sans. The alphabet is an original design by Ian Moore and Dan Rhatigan of the The Colour Grey. Ian and Dan took the tradition of chromatic alphabets and explored what would happen if the chromatic overlap created a secondary alphabet design. We’re happy to offer the design to Photo-Lettering users.

Photo-Lettering: Exotique in use

Photo-Lettering's Exotique in use

Matthijs Sluiter sent in this example of Photo-Lettering’s Exotique in use for an invitation to a series of living room concerts in the Hague. For those of us who don’t speak Dutch, Matthijs explains, “The title ‘keukengeheimen’ says ‘kitchen secrets’ as a reference to both a nostalgic cook book by that title, and to the contents of the series.”

Exotique was digitized by Kris Sowersby, so it’s appropriate that Matthija used Kris’s Calibre as the supporting typeface.

Dank u wel, Matthijs!
