Non-Stick Nostalgia: Y2K RETRO-FUTURISM

Non-Stick Nostalgia: Y2K RETRO-FUTURISM

Type design(s) and exhibition identity for Non-Stick Nostalgia: Y2K Retrofuturism in Contemporary Jewelry at the Museum of Arts & Design. In keeping with the show’s focus on “retrofuturism”, both of the type designs were inspired by various sci-fi looking fonts, but with the laws of astrophysics altering them. The stretched N-SN logotype across the gallery looks as if it were being pulled into a black hole. The secondary type looked like an LCD display font, but with a few gravitational alterations made.
