All square

I featured spreads from Green Source magazine recently. And the current issue contains a few spreads with letterforms that I haven’t seen before.

These letters remind me of an assignment we do at UB where the students are asked to create letterforms for a logotype. I frequently see solutions similar to these letters. The basic shape is a black square, and by clever use of white shapes, like smaller squares or triangles, individual letters can be created fairly quickly.

There’s a nice typographic pun in the first spread that would be worth highlighting even if there was nothing else of interest on these pages.
