////////// DETAILED ////////
Letters Are My Friends' is a concept store for typography right in the heart of Berlin Kreuzberg. A place where analogue and digital type meet with emerging technologies.
One part of 'Letters Are My Friends' is a cosy showroom where letter relationships can be experienced in a physical space and progressive way. Use your senses!
We present applied typography in a dazzling variety: peripherical perforated paper projections, spacy letterboxing, type'n'motion voxel folding, 3D ink raycasting, turntypetablelism, dolby surround fatcap-tracking, tasty toasted gpu fonts, trigonometric triangle trading and of course some serious conversations about language, its aesthetics and the future of writing.
Moreover 'Letters Are My Friends' is a research lab and production label run by Ingo Italic and Bärbel Bold. We share an interdisciplinary and experimental approach to services and products related to typography, motion- and interaction design.
We love typefaces - static and generated, still, interactive and in motion, flat and haptic, printed, installed and projected. - And support their connections to art, science and technology.
With 'Letters Are My Friends' we want to explore, initiate and feature projects that push type forward.
We are open for collaborations and commissions.
