I remember in my younger days how I used to get a kick out of photocopying my hands (and – gasp – face) whenever I encountered a photocopier. It was so cool to see all the lines of my palms and fingers. Who’s with me?
Although the novelty wore off for me, it hasn’t for one creative graphic designer in Germany. JosÃ© Ernesto Rodriguez has taken this activity to a whole new level with his photocopied hands typography. Handschrift, as Rodriguez names it (rough translation is, I believe, hand font), is literally, handmade typography. Cool, right?
The process did take some thought as Rodriguez demonstrates through his sketches.
I first came across Handschrift via Fast Company.
