Zigzag Zombie.

As part of the recent Dutch Design Week, students were instructed to produce an original typeset using thin, flat material (metal strips, tape, toilet paper, etc.) and then "pick one location, and create a large scale zigzag lettering and make passersby hallucinate."

These are all terrific, Terminal Verbosity. The first photo in group one was mesmerizing and "Crap" made me laugh.

Oh man, this post is making me miss Holland so much.

Thanks!

Great find. I enjoyed this a lot.

Keen! I couldn't quite parse this one without the assistance of the intro copy, though. Something about how they executed the first several letters failed me.

Great stuff. I really don't understand this one, though. For some reason there isn't a full overhead shot of it.

I read this one as 'desirable merman', for some reason. Bit disappointed to see that it isn't.

mumkin, I agree, though the way they dotted the "i" and crossed the "t" with the same strand at the end made up for it to me.

Yeah, I would have liked a bird's-eye view on that one too, arcticwoman. The intro claims that it says "relate," and you can kinda see it then if you squint and tilt your head and hold your breath real long.

Somehow I feel I'm going to get blamed for this, too.

Well, better this than hurricanes, bridge collapses and race riots, right?

I love me/we, though I think it looks a bit more like "me/lune."

I don't get it. What is this and why is it important?

It means they hate America, Afroblanco. They will be bombed soon. Don't worry.
