Experimental Typography

I love experimental typography. As an artist and a designer I am always looking for ways to combine the functional and the purely aesthetic. Lumen Type - the latest experiment from designer Ruslan Khasanov - is a great example of using inspiration from everyday, typically unnoticed phenomena to create a beautiful combination of conceptual art and typography. He tells Fast Co Design, “I looked at the car headlights--red and yellow circles floating on the wet road--and I found it beautiful.“ He eventually was able to simulate this effect by placing water droplets on a mirror.
