Creative Typographic Artworks That An Art Director Made During His Lunch Breaks
By Dorothy Tant, 17 Feb 2017
As a professional creative, you may find that most of your time is taken up with paying commercial work, with passion projects that can help you improve your skills being pushed to the sidelines.
Based in Cologne, Germany, freelance art director and illustrator Christoph Gey knows that he has to make time for these projects—which is why he has managed to squeeze ‘Type Hype’, a series of typographic experiments he made over three months, into the tiny pockets of free time he has over the course of his days.
Working on this personal project during his lunch breaks and on the nights when he could not get to sleep, he has manage to build an impressive collection of typographic illustrations that are made with just paper and pencil.
Many of these hand-drawn pieces are clever visual puns—for instance, a piece that reads ‘Never Hide’ features a letter ‘D’ that is made up of negative space and blends into the background.
Head over here to view more designs from the ‘Type Hype’ project—you can also follow Gey here to keep up with his portfolio.
