Case Study "Year Zero" by Pawel Nolbert

The "Year Zero" piece from Pawel Nolbert was part as Ars Thanea's submission to the same-titled book for the design festival OFFF 2011. The specialty about it is the Type which was made out of plaster by Pawel himself. Year Zero by Pawel Nolbert Details Case Study The typography was created from a plaster poured into a letter forms cut out of paper, then foiled not to get too much water from the liquid plaster. After about two days, it was removed from the forms, then sculpted to create cracks, holes (except for bubble holes) and to diversify the surface a little bit. After that, the type was photographed, then retouched and composed together with the rest of the elements in Photoshop. Some particles were additionally created in 3dsMax. - Pawel Nolbert Where to find Pawel Nolbert on the web Behance Facebook Twitter
