At the speed of light


My cousin Pedro Sá Correia is a great photographer. Some days ago he was showing me his latest works and I had one of those ‘speed of light’ inspirations from one of his pictures. This is the final result.

You can check his work here and, who knows, you might be also as inspired as I was. Thank you Pedro for your great work and to be so kind as to let me ‘spoil’ your amazing picture with some type.

Here at whatype we’ve been working on a new project. It’s going to be a digital publication, the idea behind is that each issue tells one or two stories at the same time. We’ll invite both a photographer or illustrator and a writer and give them complete creative liberty to work as they like. By making them work together we expect that sometimes the ‘visual side’ will decide on the story to be told, other times it will be the other way around. Either way they can do as they please. In the end whatype will design the story and publish it on-line, as a book/magazine.

Here is an example of the experiments we’ve been doing for this project. We are mixing Helvetica with Garamond and loving it. Hope you like this also. Keep posted for further news.
