Chris Labrooy is one of the most amazing 3d artists I've ever seen, his works it totally out of the box. In this post you will see some of his 3D Types creations inspired by the Gods of architecture, the inspiration is so amazing that got me thinking how can someone come up with such great concepts.
You will definitely like to see more from Chris, check him out at www.chrislabrooy.com
Helvetica 3d Type
Another contribution to the ever expanding helvetica image archive. The industrial architectural style with it's rough cast concrete is a perfect fit for helvetica HQ.
Oscar 3d Type
Typography design based on the architecture of Oscar Niemeyer. I picked out my favourite buildings as a basis for developing some expressive letter forms. Included are : Cathedral of Brasília / Niterói Contemporary Art Museum / Ghery house / Ibirapuera Park theatre / Oscar Niemeyer Museum.
Tadao 3d Type
Typography design based on the architecture of Tadao Ando. I picked out my favourite buildings as a basis for developing some expressive letter forms. Included are : Chikatsu Asuka historical museum / Water temple / Naoshima contemporary art museum annexe.
Toyo 3d type
Letter forms inspired by Toyo ito's impressive works. The combination of simple forms with inricate perforations is what excites me about his work. These letters are based on : TOD's omotesando / Tower of winds / Taichung opera house / Mikimoto department store.
Zaha 3D type
Typography design based on the architecture of zaha hadid. With this piece I focused on capturing zaha's formal language rather than reference specific buildings because i am very interested in her drawings and paintings from the eighties.
