sculptural typography

Finding the right typography for a graphic design project can take me hours.  In looking for something functional, I often get sidetracked by creative and fun ways that designers re-create alphabetic design.

Today’s fun find is a sculpture based on the art of Wassily Kandinsky. Here is one of his paintings, just to remind you (or introduce you to) his style:

And here is the recent sculpture, created by Turkish graphic designer, Büyükbas.

“I had the idea of experimenting with Kandinsky’s color and form theory in 3 dimension. I started with thinking each letter as a 3d canvas to play around with color and form, but also together they would form a type experimentation on Kandinsky. I presented each letter as a color and form composition and tried to relate them with the space as they are intended to be perceived in 3d dimension.” Sinan Buyukbas, from Behance Network
