ISHMAEL inspires new typeface design
We recently heard from James Walker, a Graphic Design MFA student at Virginia Commonwealth University, who said: "While enrolled in a type design class we were tasked with choosing an author and designing a typeface based on a book. I chose ISHMAEL. The resulting typeface was meant to represent what a modern society would move towards had it been consumed by New Tribalism. It became a modern sans-serif with hard angles to show modern culture mixed with hand-craft."
ISHMAEL has served as an inspiration for quite a lot of artists and artwork over the years, but this is the first time we know of that it's ever been the genesis of a new typeface design. (And we think a very classy one.) Have a look at it here–and connect with more of James's work as well.
