EMEK featured in Typography Sketchbooks

We are super stoked to see a sketch EMEK did for our poster make it into the book Typog­ra­phy Sketch­books by Steven Heller and Talarico Lita. From the books descrip­tion: Typog­ra­phy is an obses­sion for most design­ers. It’s at the heart of all visual com­mu­ni­ca­tion and is one of the purest forms of design, one that can always be improved and refined. Typog­ra­phy Sketch­books gets into the minds of design­ers who cre­ate type­faces, word images and logos through their pri­vate sketch­books. The result of these wide-ranging typo­graphic mus­ings pro­vide fas­ci­nat­ing insights into the expres­sive qual­ity of let­ters and words. Aimed at all those who use type, whether by hand or on-screen, this pleas­ing com­pendium stresses the impor­tance of good typog­ra­phy at a time when read­ing habits are chang­ing and cel­e­brates a craft that has endured for centuries.

The TRPS 10th Anniver­sary Fes­ti­val of Rock Posters poster EMEK designed for us is pic­tured below. The glow in the dark silkscreen embossed poster is sold out, but you can get this art on a high qual­ity T-Shirt if you become a TRPS mem­ber. Makes for a great Hol­i­day gift!
