A "Teaser" video of our upcoming documentary about the Vista Sans Wood Type Project by Ashley John Pigford and Tricia Treacy.
The Vista Sans Wood Type Project is a collaborative project exploring the relationship between Typography, Digital Fabrication Tools and experimental Letterpress Printmaking. A little bit about us ... Ashley and I have collaborated on a number of projects that blend our interests and skills in graphic design, printmaking and physical computing and we enjoy an expanded application of contemporary design practice. We initiated this project with the desire to simply make wood type out of a typeface we love. As we hope to show you today, the project then really evolved into this international and collaborative experiment in post-digital printmaking processes.
