Sculpture: Heterosis

heterosis by brian banton

Canadian freelance graphic designer Brian Banton created this three-dimensional typeface from plexi-glas and transparent elastic for his Master's thesis at York University in Toronto.  Each character in this sculpture collection was created by blending two vector lines across a spatial plane in order to produce a 3D letter. The result is a set of characters that holds more possibilities than the standard 2D alphabets and is considerably more fun to look at.

This motion graphic video demonstrates the kinetic characteristics of the experimental 3d typeface. The letters were constructed from transparent acrylic and transparent elastic. Each character was photographed 60 times at intervals of 6 degrees of rotation in order to produce the motion loops.
