Jonny Holmes / Bodoni

Wonderful decorative spin on Bodoni produced by classmates Nigel Bents, Paul Oakley and Jonny Holmes at the Chelsea College of Art Design. I love the intersection of digital and analog in this project — ultimately arriving in the form of a printed piece.

While this specific piece is a collaboration between the three designers (not to mention the laser cutter and printer), it’s worth checking Jonny’s other typographic projects as well. There’s a strong spirit of determined experimentation and playfulness throughout his work.

James Edmondson

Amazingly talented letterer, James Edmondson has a portfolio to get completely jealous over. With a keen eye for beautiful forms, he creates type that is reminiscent of the old masters. He keeps his collection of typography modern by adding some interesting and original decorative elements in places like swashes and terminals. With such an exciting portfolio, I’m really interested to see what he does when he graduates from college—I see a very successful typographic career ahead!

James has also designed several original typefaces, Lavanderia, Duke Wisdom Script, which can be found and bought over at the Lost Type Co-Op .
