Hobos are the modern homeless community of the US. To help each other out, these vagabonds developed their own secret language to direct other hobos to food, water, or work – or away from dangerous situations. The Hobo Code helped add a small element of safety when traveling to new places. For more information:

Vienna’s new typography “micro-museum”…..

Typopassage, MuseumsQuartier Wien, Vienna

January 27th, 2010

A 60,000 square metre cultural complex in the centre of Vienna, The MuseumsQuartier Wien is the 8th largest of it’s kind in the world, and now, thanks to fellow city dwellers, creative agency Bauer, the MuseumsQuartier is now home to ‘Typopassage‘, a wonderfully simplistic concept whereby a short a passage way within the compounds of the MuseumsQuartier plays host to a changing exhibition of contemporary typography. Barcelona based type-legend Alex Trochut is first up, lending his distinctive style to the walls and ceiling of the Typopassage…. the accompanying catalogue – and concept for it’s distribution – is the real star here though, dispensed for 2 euros from a fantastically retro vending machine and sealed in a weatherproof package, the catalogue contains alluring imagery and detailed background on the exhibiting artist, allowing the general public to experience first hand and subsequently digest the works of contemporary designers without even entering a private gallery space…. inspiring.

type in foamcore

What a terrible title. This project is all about letters. Gigantic typesetting letters made out of everyone’s favorite material: foamcore. What foamcoar is really depends on who you are, what you’re using it for: for the average citizen, it’s just a big hunk of really dense foam. You can write your name in it! For an artist, it’s better than a tuber! You can carve your life away, and at only $10 a giant block! Bigger than your whole body!

So artist / designer Balázs Szabó did just that. Made some gigantic letters.

What’s better than setting letters in type? Setting letters in GIANT type, of course. Every good designer wants their work to be bigger than their head someday, bigger than those 11×17″ sheets they steal from the service bureau. So Szabó took matters into the hands and got to carving. Then what was created was more than meets the eye! A gigantic roll of paper descending from the sky, printed on it the letters made!

How fancy!

Also pictured below are some clay(?) letters also carved by Szabó.

Project Overview

Ween in Knoxville, TN Poster
October 2009
Justin Helton
Status Serigraph
Production Details

75 (Signed and Numbered)
2 Weeks
16 in × 22 in
Accent, 100 lb Cover
3 Spot



Status Serigraph is the design firm and print enterprise of Justin Helton, based in Knoxville, TN and when the band Ween made a stop on his hometown, he created a limited edition poster for the event. Weird and offbeat, the poster is wonderfully textured, and its inspiration is unexpected:

My number one influence in process is the music of the band that I am designing for… part of my process involves listening to the band as I design. I also love to draw influence from, many design magazines, cartoons, and other artists. The face in this particular design is actually based on a photo of the original G.I. Joe doll… It had sort of a creepy/weird feeling to it… so I tried to intensify that feeling and play upon it. I think a lot of Ween’s songs have this same feeling therefore the design felt good for the show.
