Image, Building, Object Posters

    Image, Building, Object: Exploring Architecture & Design on Film is a film series curated by Michael Graham (Director, Balloon Contemporary), Tim Parsons (Associate Professor, Designed Objects, School of the Art Institute of Chicago), and independent designer Casey Lurie in partnership with Black Cinema House in Chicago.

    James Goggin’s tabloid-size posters are Riso stencil-printed by Working Knowledge. The stout headline face is Paul Renner’s underused Plak. Perhaps we don’t see a lot of Plak these days because it is available in only one weight/3 widths. A contemporary full-family alternative is Graphik (see Super weight), though it doesn’t quite have Plak’s personality, like the balled ‘r’. The text type is an unfinished monospaced face by Laurenz Brunner based on Letter Gothic.

      The unidentified monospace typeface is the beautiful Inconsolata.

      I don’t think so, Shinrai. Inconsolata is very different. The ‘g’ is double-story, for instance.

      Coming from James Goggin, I wouldn’t be surprised if this was a custom design.

      Yep, James confirmed to me that the monospacer is a beta typeface by Laurenz Brunner, “his updated/stylised version of Letter Gothic”.
