Kingston graphic designers create type from ice and iron filings

Students from Kingston University’s Graphic Design course held their graduate degree show last week in Dray Walk Gallery on Brick Lane. The projects on display included type made from ice and iron filings, and a number of printed books. Here’s some of our favourite pieces of work…

Leanne Bentley’s typographic hoardings protect closed-down buildings and share the local community’s memories of their former glory.

The iron filing characters in Fran Board’s typographic installation transform in response to amibient noise.

Nic Cockram makes letters out of nails:

Felix Heyes and Ben West’s book contains the first Google image result for every word in the dictionary.

Lucy Warden made type out of ice to illustrate the point that less legible text improves reader recall.

Danni Ingram’s atlas depicts each of the world’s time zones as a separate country.
