Audree Type System

Audree is new type system designed by Nikola Djurek with Marko Hrastovec, consisting out of several hundred styles. Choosing between fifteen different serif shapes, two construction models, high or low contrast, and adding stencil or inline effects results in unique, expressive variations of Audree’s letterforms.

Studij dizajna @Špancirfest exhibition

Exhibition presents two projects developed during Špancirfest 2011 workshop which was organized by School of design, Zagreb. Aim was to produce technologically and conceptually deductible solutions for local producers. One group was dealing with local marketplace and it’s needs, while second group was designing packaging for pumpkin oil. 

Marketplace has delivery service where people can order fresh fruits and vegetables online or by phone. At the time, goods are delivered in plastic bags only. Main goal was to define and develop delivery boxes, paper and canvas bags as equipment which will primarily serve for delivering goods and at the same time it will be promotion material for marketplace. 

Visual part of the identity is based on native, area specific communication dialect and phrases leaving space for users to use material as they used to (writing prices, names etc.) and therefore personalize macro identity for their micro purposes. 

Product design: Ozana Ursić, Sanja Rotter
Graphic design: Marko Hrastovec 

Exhibition takes place @ Šenoina 12, Varaždin from August 24 until September 2, 2012.

Ausseerland-Salzkammergut - found type

All photos were taken in the north of Steiermark province in Austria, more precisely Ausseerland - Salzkammergut region, which is placed in Alps and where people stick to their local identity and customs trying not to live modern life as we (urban people) know it. Therefore most of the traditional customs are preserved until the present day which (among other things) is reflected in many hand-made signs mostly written in Fraktur - traditional script of the area. 

(Bad quality photos taken with iPhone4 camera)

Region is well known for it’s numerous salt mines. Although they date back to 1147., they produce huge amount of salt even today. Here are photos of entrances in 2 mines with huge ‘ERBSTOLLEN’ letterings above the gates.

 

'Gluck Auf’ - traditional miners greeting made out of metal in Fraktur 

Series of hand-made signs written in different versions of Fraktur (probably every painter uses his own handwriting)

Interesting hand paint on wood saying: 'Privat-Parkplatz’

Various Fraktur examples through different media

Engraved swashed letters on a plaque in front of a Church in Grundlsee 

Grundlsee house numbers or even house signs (many families uses them since they offer accommodation for tourists). There are number of different house numbers and signs made out of different materials and here are some of the most interesting ideas.

Official local wayfinding plates and probably custom type in use (very nice combination of sans and fraktur details)

Documents from 'Ice cave’ museum in Dachstein.
