Webbed, geometric styled typography

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Inspired by the 60s and 70s popular paint-by-numbers, the strategically placed needles or pins have created an interesting design for typographers to execute type forms. String typography makes use of the connection between the needles or pins with string or yarn, depending on the medium that artists prefer. String typography creates a 3D, geometric styled performance. Dan Hoopert, a young designer based in London, he specialises in 3D and has strong interests in Typography. His designs and that of string typography have been expressed in the “Quick Brown Fox” that can be found on Behance.
