HKVANIT1ES, Poetry in Motion (Special Project)
Vanity plates are the ultimate nonessential car accessory used by their owners to highlight their status, wealth, humour, desires, beliefs or superstitions – and in Hong Kong they can be seen everywhere. Each plate is like a line of poetry racing through the bustling streets of the city. It is poetry in motion. This project presents an exhaustive image collection of vanity plates, a gallery of poems by Hong Kong and international artists, and a game where you can compose and share your own Hong Kong vanity poems. The typeface designed for HKVANIT1ES stems from the adaptation of a project started years earlier but never fully developed. The design echoes the shapes and imagery of car license plates. HKV Plates is designed in 1 basic family and two framed versions, allowing the designer to create different combinations. HKVANIT1ES is a project by Michele Salati, an Italian Creative Director in Advertising and Artist living in Hong Kong
Shared Campus (Bespoke Typeface)
We developed a complete typeface for the project, called Campus, as first element of a complete corporate identity, based on the concept of unit and group: the letters are constructed on a module structure, in which each part is at the same time a single unit as well as a fundamental element of a complex syntax. Shared Campus is a cooperation platform for international education formats, research networks and joint productions launched by seven arts institutions. Partners: City University of Hong Kong/School of Creative Media, Hong Kong Baptist University, Kyoto Seika University, LASALLE College of the Arts (Singapore), Taipei National University of the Arts, University of the Arts London, Zurich University of the Arts. Theme Partners: China Academy of Art (Hangzhou), Social Transformation, University of Siegen, Pop Cultures.
Wired USA (Bespoke Typeface)
Wired Mono is a bespoke version of Airport Mono font designed at Think Work Observe, a monospaced sans-serif typeface inspired by military airports signage, designed in four weights (Thin, Light, Regular, Bold) for Wired Magazine USA between September 2017 and March 2018. Working closely with Art Director Frank Augugliaro we revised several original glyphs and added new functions. Wired Mono has appeared for the first time in April 2018 (Life Issue). Wired is a monthly American magazine, published in print and online editions, that focuses on how emerging technologies affect culture, the economy, and politics. The magazine was founded by American journalist Louis Rossetto and his partner Jane Metcalfe, along with Ian Charles Stewart, in 1993 with initial backing from software entrepreneur Charlie Jackson and eclectic academic Nicholas Negroponte of the MIT Media Lab, who was a regular columnist for six years (through 1998) and wrote the book Being Digital.
