Helvetica Live!

Oded Ezer is a graphic designer and experimental typographer from Israel. This is a poster he did some time ago based on Helvetica. He says: "...formal intersections between the famous Helvetica letters and various object silhouettes. Consciously ignoring "logical" context, I (Oded Ezer) was influenced by Dadaist methods and contemporary virtual hybridizations of animals and human beings. These typo hybrids suggest a more playful and humorous attitude to typography, a field that often suffers from an unjust reputation of an overly strict and serious one."

Oded has just published a book titled "The Typographer‘s Guide to the Galaxy". You can buy it here.
