Inspired: Objectified

I’ve started a personal project inspired by this poster for the movie Objectified: A Documentary Film by Gary Hustwit. The poster was designed by Build and I love the way they make letters out of objects (not a fresh idea, per-say, but always a great one when executed well).

*As an aside, if you haven’t seen Objectified, I highly recommend it. It’s a fascinating documentary about – duh – objects. If you’re a designer, it is an easy and interesting way to explain design to your friends/family – and if you’re not a designer, it’s still fascinating because of all the interesting concepts that are brought up (i.e. the relationship of cars to their owners)

I’m working on two different ‘alphabets’ – one made of famous designs (like the Panton chair making an ‘S’), and one set of letters made of tools used to ‘design’ (various tools and crafting objects, etc.). I already have the letters I, D, S, and A done because I put them together for a t-shirt competition for this year’s IDSA @ GT.

Progress will be posted ASAP 🙂
