Type Tuesday, 25h September

My connection is still slow, so today's inspiration comes from the bookshelf rather than internet. It's all scanned from my favourite design publication Idea magazine. These images are from a special edition, (Issue 308), about Dutch designers Armand Mevis and Linda Van Deursen, and the publication's focus is on their 'Recycled Works 1990 - 2005'. They've photographed or scanned works on top of other works, to create an interesting, collaged, border effect. Most of their type is bold, and their colours bright. The team are known as Mevis & Van Deursen, and their client base is cultural institutions, artists and fashion designers. You can read more about them at the Design Museum website.
