CR April Issue
Rick Poynor looks back over two decades of the Designers Republic plus, Spanish type case art, Alison Carmichael and our very own Mumbai taxi – all in the April issue of CR
April is our special issue on type and typography and all things letter-related. As detailed here, our cover features a Mumbai taxi covered in typography specially designed for the issue (watch an interview with the artists here)
We also have a profile of hand-lettering artist Alison Carmichael, whose work has a ribald charm that is proving very popular with ad agencies (hence the punning headline)
And a feature on the recent Art of Lost Words show in which selected designers and illustrators each based a piece on a word that is fast disappearing from the English language
Plus, from Barcelona, Jordi Duró and Meri Cuesta reveal how the remarkable ingenuity of Spanish printers gave rise to a unique form of modernist design
And Rick Poynor's aforementioned tDR piece (which, in part, draws on his intro for the ill-fated, never-published-despite-what-they-said tDR book), which stretches over six pages and follows up our exclusive revelation that the studio had closed its doors earlier this year
Our subscriber-only Monograph this month features Synthesis, a series of organic forms created by Jeff Knowles
The April issue is on sale from 25 March. Next month: The Annual
Oh, that's... bright!
This is so fun ;) Not everyone get's their own taxi graphics !
One of the most interesting and crazy typography assignments we had was to collect all the letters of the alphabet from billboards and other such spaces. A major portion of letters was contributed not just by taxis and auto-rickshaws, but also by trucks!! It's an optical feast!
Very cool - very interesting concept. Some stickers of the graphics would be nice!
I want that ride......
brilliant stuff!! I'm sure it was loads of fun!
