Pollock Typeface

  • This is an experimental typeface that was created by dripping black house paint on paper with various tools, a technique made famous by the artist Jackson Pollock by which it is named. I used plastic utensils, chopsticks, and wooden paint stir sticks to create various effects.
     
    This won first place in the 2014 Positive Space art show at La Roche College in the typography category. Check out the website: www.designatlaroche.com
