ABOUT







Joe Burke

Graphic designer in Manchester, UK, who created the hexagonal typeface Metabolist in 2014. He explains: Typeface Design based upon an architectural movement in Japan during the 1960's called Metabolism. It attempted to merge architectural megastructures with ideas of biological and organic growth. One famous example of this is the Nakagin Capsule Tower by Kisho Kurokawa (1972, Tokyo).

Baurean (2015, "Braun + Korean") is influenced by simple Hangul text forms and by the compass-and-ruler Braun logo designed by Wolfgang Schmittel (1952).
