Typography Experiment by Carlos de Toro

Carlos de Toro share a quite interesting project on his Behance page, he played with the idea of overlapping different designs to create a new typography style from it. The result is quite interesting, there's a mix of 3D and M. C. Escher, and because of that we of course are sharing it here on ABDZ Work around the idea of layered typefaces and the overlapping of different designs to form a new one. Influenced by ideas from other disciplines like the use of stencils, double exposures or traditional printing systems. 3D Printing technique was used to create different Types made of PLA filament. Carlos de Toro is a Spanish graphic & type designer currently based between Barcelona & Logroño. He's deeply interested in type, branding and editorial design. I graduated at ESDIR and moved to Barcelona to course MA in Advanced Typography in UAB. 2nd September 2013 I released Born, my first typeface, since then I haven't stopped working in typography stuff; Recently I released my new typeface Recia published by The Indian Type Foundry.

Memories Video Experiment with Harinezumi Toy Camera

Hi, Guys! I am back to show you this new video I made with a tiny little toy camera called Digital Harinezumi 1 (http://www.superheadz.com). This little piece of retro heaven can deliver 640 x 380 resolution images with an 8mm film like effect. I know the res isn't good and that's why I chose to make a multi-screen version to try to give it a boost in the old resolution. NO post production effects or image enhancements where used in this video. Well, people, this was shot in a space of about 2 months. I simply captured everything I thought could give me a nice final compilation of images. Then I handed the images to my main man, Alex Guterres, and he then edited the images with the sound, etc... Hope you guys like it. Any questions you need answering I am here to help you out. Please do leave a comment with your opinion. It does wonders to my humble little ego, ahahaaha. Thank you all till the next one. This post and video were created by John Alington of DBOX Studios

Underwater Experiment in Photoshop

After a couple of weeks playing with Pixelmator, I decided to finish a image I was working on in Photoshop, it was an underwater scene. I had done some experiments before but I wasn’t sure if that was the effect I wanted. However this last image I think is pretty good so I decided to share with you for some feedback and I will be publishing a tutorial showing how I did that pretty soon. For this image I basically mix some photos to create the rocks, Illustrator for the 3D typo and some brushes for the other effects. Also I used the Fluid Mask 3 Plugin for the cuts and it’s really good indeed. But before the image let me announce the Fluid Mask 3 winner from our last giveaway. The lucky guy is: Danny Batista Final Result. First Experiments
