Chinese Whispers 2

HUgo Marucco's Bold and wide design for TypeRadio's Chinese Whispers 2.

For the second time TypeRadio organized their Chinese Whispers project. Students from the HBK Saar created sound pieces based on a specific typeface. The TypeMedia students gleaned clues and ideas from these sounds and then drew new typefaces. Sounds and faces (and students!) came together on Friday February 7, 2014 to look at the entertaining results. Thanks to the students, Indra Kupferschmid, Donald Beekman and the TypeRadio crew!
