An excercise in conveying a thought through typography from the class Designing with Type. The words behind these designs are (starting top row left): Singular, juxtaposed, repeted and episodic. Originally 6" x 6" squares, laser prints. © Kári Emil Helgason, September 2009.

Something I did for fun. Any New Yorker will know what it means. Typeface is Futura Extra Bold.

Labbað í leikskólann

This is a logo I designed for Börnin okkar (e. Our Children), an association of parents with children in pre-school. The logo was to promote a community effort, Labbað í leikskólann (e. Walking to Pre-School), encouraging parents and guardians to walk their kids rather than driving them to pre-school. The typeface is a modified version of Century Schoolbook Roman, a typeface often used to teach children to read.
