Two-Faced Type

A series of typography experiments that play with 3D space to create opposing words when viewed from different angles. I start with basic sketches of the letter forms, before modelling them in Styrofoam and filming a final 'fly-past' that shows both words in one swoop.

Love & Hate - I decided to tweak the 'E' character, so I did a bit of sketching halfway through the modelling process!
