I came across a wonderful debut book by Korean-born graphic designer Ji Lee called Word As Image. What is great about it is the wit and intelligence used to add life into the words by crafting fonts that visually mimic the meaning behind the word itself. This sounds confusing, so it’s best explained and enjoyed by figuring them out for yourself.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
