Arrow experiments

The arrow shape holds many possibilities when it comes to patterns. I like the way the heads of the arrows meet and form new shapes. Again, a simple variation of the shape in SymmetryWorks, creates an entirely different pattern. I’ll post more of my experiments in the near future. Stay tuned.

    great stuff!, i like the second one. i like stuff that is build out of one sort of shape but totally doesn’t look like the shape at first sight

    cool cool!!…i love the third one, reminds me a bit of a poster shown in the film about helvetica….

    Melvin –> I’m glad you notice this. That’s exactly what I tried to achieve with the patterns.

    Mathias –> Thanks! And that’s a great movie. Gotta get my hands on that someday :)

    @Jokke-svin
    You have to! – I´ve seen it like 20 times, and still finding it inspiring

    By the way – where are you working?…

  6. Jokke-svin says:

    Mathias –> Right now I’m just doing some random freelance stuff. Wow I just saw that FontStruct on your blog btw. That’s awesome for creating identities and not having to mess around with the more hardcore editors such as FontLab. Nice!

  7. Mathias says:

    Okay cool, so you will be updating your folio soonish??…heh

    yeah, it´s quite old news…but i just could not life without, having it on my blog…:)..looking forworrd to use it for new sweet identiities…

    And it has also inspired me for the next blog post, which will be about Typography in Copenhagen…my plan is to go out today, and shoot lots of photos…ONLY OF TYPO!…

    Oh yeah that’s right, I haven’t really paid much attention to my portfolio for quite some time now. For that I’m sorry, hehe. Gotta go through my new projects and throw up the good shit… dedicate a day for that I guess.

    It’s so much fun to run around snapping typo off the streets. I did the exact same thing here in Kolding in connection with a project at the Design School. At the end of the day, I had quite the neat collection of random typo from Kolding. It now sits on a CD. I remember taking a lot of pics down at the harbor. That’s generally a place with lots of great typo in my opinion. Go the the harbor or any other industrial zone if you get the change. It’s got killer typography / symbols / pictograms.

    Happy hunting.

    yeah you are right!…
    I also find industrial places quite cool..there are so many diffrent things which relates to design, but in a very diffrent way then everything else….

    I mean, if you think about a contanier….which clearly just is pure metal…and then you put some clean typo on. e.g. Helvetica….

    Okay, sound cool??…
    Found it like a month ago – very cool website, just showing some cool offices…and i am so in love with this office, who has a container with clean typo on…

    Check it out!!!
