Swiss artist Rylsee inspires with some typography twists
I am obsessed with figuring out new ways to play with my name. When I was little, it was simply drawing hearts instead of dots for my lowercase i's. As I got older, and with enough boring classes to sit through, my notebooks soon filled up with all sorts of unique fonts. Once I started going to art school, I was sucked into my Typography classes. Who knew there were CLASSES for things like this? Since then, I always have to stop and look when I see good font styles, whether it's on a package, in a magazine, or somewhere on the internet. Everyone's got that weird thing they're into, right?
Ryslee is a Swiss-raised, Berlin-based artist who has made an entire career out of playing around with typography. His finished works are a lot more elaborate, but here I wanted to feature the fun optical illusions he does in (on, around, etc.) his sketchbooks. It's really inspiring and cool to look at!
