Clock of clocks

This clock by Christiaan Postma consists of more than 150 separate clocks, each of them playing a role in a hybrid typographic/hand device to tell what time it is.

Christiaan explains the concept:
The word “three” completely appears when it’s exactly 3 o’clock and will then transform again as time passes. The word “four” begins to appear and at exactly 4 o’clock the word “four” is clearly visible. The word “three” is by then totally vanished and no longer readable.

Eureka carpark

Axel Peemoeller designed this huge colourful typographic wayfinding signage for the Eureka Parking in Melbourne. The characters are distorted by their perspective projection designed to be legible from the driver seat of the visiting cars.

Redline GTP

Turning Papyrus’ NASCAR racing 2003 simulation into a true 80s/90s GTP simulation requires more than editing models, physics and sounds. With its dark blue and red interface, less-than-subtle typography and clunky feedback sounds Nascar Racing 2003 Season oozes North American…


Right after I got my degree in graphic design in 1997 vpro took note of my graduation project and hired me to experiment on then uncharted territory, the internet.

Digital Decay

Graduation project. The Internet is not a highway anymore at all. You can forget about making miles these days. All these homepages and webcommercials make it look more like a small town center. Everybody has their own front lawn, some…
