Radio Panik

OSP has designed the 2012 program for Brussels based alternative radio station, Radio Panik (105.4 FM). The program (‘the grille’) is constructed through what is considered a type crime— horizontally squashing the text to make it fit.

Next to the design of the program, we constructed a web interface that provides a means for the employees of Radio Panik to generate cd covers and posters in the same style.

We debuted our new typeface Reglo on this job.

Lecture: We like tight pants and Mathematics @ Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam

October 25, 2011

Blog Post

To give programming a productive place in your arts and design practice, you need to get to know programming culture, and, ideally, take part in (re)shaping it. To feel comfortable with being a programmer, you might want to change what a programmer is. With queering up I am not referring to homosexuality, but rather to an approach that undermines existing masculine, heteronormative ideals. An historical example would be Glam rock’s appropriation of the traditional ‘œearnest’ masculine rock musician into the polysexual identity mirror palace created by musicians as David Bowie and Freddy Mercury.

Open Baskerville

Open Baskerville is an ongoing open source project to create a digital revival of the famous ‘Baskerville’ typefaces. Open Baskerville is based upon Fry’s Baskerville, a Baskerville-inspired derivative created by Isaac Moore, a punchcutter who worked for the type foundry of Joseph Fry.

Even though the prospect of collaborative open source type development upsets some type designers, the project has been inspirational for other open font initiatives, like the League of Movable Type, the OSP Foundry and The Open Font Library.
