Animal magic

At his recent TYPO London talk, Henrik Kubel of A2/SW/HK admitted he can’t draw animals like the artist he used to watch on TV when he was a boy. But he can wield a pen to produce some fantastic hand-drawn lettering, as a film for the studio’s A2-TYPE foundry shows

At his recent TYPO London talk, Henrik Kubel of A2/SW/HK admitted he can’t draw animals like the artist he used to watch on TV when he was a boy. But he can wield a pen to produce some fantastic hand-drawn lettering, as a film for the studio’s A2-TYPE foundry shows…

The film, which is available to view on A2-TYPE’s Vimeo page here, was made for the foundry by Animade and features hand-drawn type and a voiceover by Kubel. The designer presented the piece as part of his presentation at the “Social”-themed TYPO London conference last week.
