Exciting news! The fine folks at Kapitza studio in the UK are at it again. You may remember, this past February I blogged about Kapitza’s first Geometric Pattern book and the beautiful digital textiles that fill its pages. Sadly I was never able to get my hands on a copy (welp!), but now you’re in luck. The duo behind Kapitza (sisters Nicole and Petra Kapitza) started a Kickstarter project to fund printing this second volume. So here’s your chance to own one for yourself. There’s also cool goodies that come with supporting this project like tote bags, prints, signed copies, etc – so check it out. I’m particularly excited about the printer test sheets. I think this is SUCH a good idea. Saturdays Surf NYC sold limited edition test sheets of their latest magazine. There’s something cool about the printer marks and seeing the book spreads laid out on a flat sheet. Must be the graphic designer in me. So if you’re a lover of color and pattern like me, head over to Kickstarter now to get Geometric Two for yourself! Get into it.
How cool do these look (page spreads above).
Keep in mind these are all “pattern fonts,” instead of using letters within a font on the computer, Kapitza created patterns with each character, or parts of a pattern (like shapes) where each letter would normally be, and manipulated the colors to create the patterns you see above. I have abolutley NO idea how they do it, but what a great idea!
Test sheet (above). Would make a great print to hang in your apartment.
Again, check out their Kickstarter project here.
