Eureka Tower Car Park Signage, Melbourne, Australia
At first glance this wouldn’t seem to be the most glamorous design brief, “Design signage for a concrete car park”, and at first glance these ‘signs’ might not look that unusual but emerystudio and Axel Peemöller collaborated to make this fantastic wayfinding system.
This award winning piece of work was inspired by the work of Swiss artist Felice Varini who specialises in one-point-perspective installation paintings. The colourful, bold type ensures that the signs stand-out just at the moment a driver approaches from the right angle, meaning they are also context sensitive.
‘TypeLab’ is a website set up by Jack Sharples for his final major project at Chelsea College of Art and Design, which he used to showcase his explorations into experimental typography by using chemicals and compounds with unusual properties.
Shown above, he’s used Ferrofluid, a liquid that’s strongly affected when in close contact with a magnetic field. It’s apparently also black in colour but highly reflective! Looks absolutely beautiful. See more of Jack’s TypeLab here.
