Experimental Typography

This is a very image heavy post, as I think it should be! I recently interviewed Hugo Werner about his collages, and along with his work I found the work of his students, part of an Experimental Typography class that works with collage and typography. I love love love the idea of this project, which involves collage, transfers, lettering, stamps, stencils, and calligraphy. "The main objective is to explore the materiality of the word-image," says Hugo.



What I find so fascinating about this experimental project is the way each student interprets the assignment differently, and of course, the excellent use of typographic elements. I think it's such a valuable collection of student collage work!
