LETTERING MEETS LETTERPRESS
Lettering & Letterpress
Nicole Arnett Phillips — a kiwi typographer, living in Australia. Nicole has always had a philosophy of working in collaboration not opposition with her peers. After corresponding we wanted to explore the juxtapositions in our relationship, we may contrast in styles but we are cohesive in our passion and approach therefore it was important for us to show the beauty of creating tangible artwork from across the globe.
Northern/Southern - As we both come from different sides of the hemisphere. I created the word ‘northern’ which sits above and overlaps the word ‘southern’ therefore when light hits the frame of design creates a shadow over ‘southern’ which in turn represents night and day in two different time zones.
Opposites/Attract - Girl meets boy; north meets south; lettering meets letterpress. The word ‘opposites’ and the word I created ‘attracts’ , are situated in a negative position but by combining the two together and their meanings, creates a positive (symbol) reaction.
