type designers pay homage to Bowie
Graphic designer Blam – of Print-process and Blanka – recently tapped 100 design luminaries to render Bowie’s name in a typeface of their choosing or creation. The results have been gathered onto a limited release print in anticipation of the impending ‘David Bowie is’ retrospective at the V&A, opening on 23 March.
‘The changing faces of Bowie’ poster features contributions from the likes of Pentagram, Trevor Jackson, Anthony Burrill, Stockholm Design Lab and Wallpaper*, the fonts as stylistically eclectic as the musician they pay tribute to. The prints will be available to buy from the museum’s shop, priced at £45. Each artwork comes with a certificate and an insert with insights from the contributors on their submissions.
