The book explores the work of different innovative artists that "defy accepted conventions, using food, fabric, wood, metal, plastic and more to enhance their work. Attention is paid not only to form, but to the materials used to construct letters and numbers, with whimsical and playful results." One way to call it Type without limits!

Can you really compare experimental 3D typography – like lettering made of live moss or letter kites that fly messages in the sky – to the work of Gutenberg? If you ask Jeanette Abbink, Emily CM Anderson and the over 100 international designers, typographers and artists featured in 3D Typography, the answer is a resounding yes.

Via @MichaelSurtees, a review of the book 3D Typography, "... this book captured something that most books dealing with images found on the internet miss on - timelessness."

I finished the logo for the Young 2 Store in China. The idea of opening this store came from the inspiration of Eric Chin and his sister. They wanted to have a place where young couples about to get married could find the perfect gowns and suits for their big day. The store rents gowns and suits and it also offers a dressing up service, which guides you through the process of selecting a gown or suit and looking your best.

The store name Young 2, also means square young, representing two young people who are about to get married and want to dress up, looking young staying young and looking their best for this special day.

Very excited after receiving the Type Player book, which features some of my work. This book looks to show that type is everywhere: from posters and book covers to t-shirt prints and signage. Yet, despite its ubiquitousness, it is still one of the elements of design that is played with the most. The fact that those who design with type must work within the constraints of the alphabet seems only to inspire more and more spirited, irreverent and inventive uses of its basic shapes and symbols. Type Player is a celebration of these innovators, and of the surprising and varied work that they create.
