The Type That Thrills
In the summer of 2012, eight designers, Andre Ogradǎ, Felix
Hornoiu, Vlad Neuman, Nicu Duta, Alex Beltechi, Octavian Budai,
Koma and Vian Peanu, got together in Bucharest and made a pact that
they wanted to hone their skills and "share the results with
everybody." What came out of their hard work was "The Type
Project." A type and lettering collaborative undertaking, which
sought to push each designer to a new level. Not only was this
project taken on with the impression that it would strengthen each
designer individually, but that it would also provide exposure in
their "neck of the woods" that had been decidedly lacking.
The outcome? An amazing website that showcases an
incredibly vast selection of typography, which the artists try to
update weekly. Not only does the website display the work of the
creators, but also provides an outlet for any type lover who hopes
to experiment with their lettering work. Thus, the project that was
created to push a few, has in fact, inspired many.
