Dialekt Design (was: Robert Beck Design) [Robert Beck]

Canadian graphic designer and creative director Bob Beck has been living in the Montreal area since 1995. In 1999, he set up Dialekt Design. His typographic oeuvre is extensive:

  • Learned Behaviour (1996-1997), Manipulator, LaPlaya, 1996, all experimental/exploratory typefaces available from 2Rebels.
  • Table Manners, 1997, PsyOps, 2Rebels, Prototype Experimental Foundry (defunct). Beck: Table Manners was born out of the desire for a highly readable text typeface with a subtle graphic edge that would amplify with size. This otherwise simple and geometric type shows its mischief through devilishly spiked-serifs and unexpected curves.
  • Loop. 1998. The loop typeface is a pure research project designed by Dialekt in order to investigate the development of simple letterforms through rigid, bold geometric structures and rigorous grid systems.
  • RagingBoner, 1999. Custom typeface designed for Burton Snowboards for product packaging and communications materials.
  • Hermetique (2001), designed initially for Cascades Paper's exclusive use on paper sample swatchbooks, soon to be released in modified form as a full family.
  • Private Press, 2001. This typeface was letterpress printed from an original 1858 10-Line woodtype specimen from the Wells, NY type foundry, and then digitzed in ultra high resolution to retain all the character and wear of this aged alphabet. It is available for purchase as a bitmap TIFF image collection only.
  • Asylum, 2005. Asylum is a hand-lettered typeface designed specifically for a snowboard project application for Performance Boardshop in Quebec. It contains 1,313 unique individual glyphs and comes in OpenType format.
  • Blaikie, 2006. Blaikie is a custom commission for Canadian Law Office Heenan Blaikie, a national copyright and patent law office. It was developed for proprietary use in all communications materials, as well as signage and wayfinding needs internally for all offices Canada-wide.
