A Font Made From The Light Emitted From An iPhone
By Kelly Koo, 26 Aug 2013
Australian designer Marcus Byrne has created a typeface using two unlikely instruments: an iPhone and a Canon 5D camera.
He sets his camera to a 3.5-second exposure, then uses his iPhone as a moving instrument to "paint" letters of the alphabet in the air.
In a dark room, the light trails generated by the app icons form neon, block-like characters that make for a standout typeface. The multi-colored apps also create a rainbow-effect that is visible on close-up.
Aptly named 'Phone Streak', its bold effect is explored when superimposed on images of a dark nature.
The font can be downloaded for free here.
