Coordination Asia, a Shanghai-based architecture firm known for creating visually robust environments, completed a new breed of telecom stores named AER for AISIDI, one of China’s leading resellers for mobile and digital products and services.
I missed this piece of work by R2 design a few years ago – but I’m sure you’ll agree it’s still very much worth writing about.
Vai Com Deus (Go With God) was a temporary installation covering the front of an 18th century chapel in Lisbon that reopened as an art gallery.
In reference to the building’s original use and draw people’s attention to the building, situated on a small alleyway, the façade become a canvas for a striking typographic design filled with expressions referring to God.
Constructed using environmentally friendly MDF hydrofuge sheets, the letters used H&FJ’s Knockout typeface as their template (due in part its range of weights and widths), it was then finished with rough masonry paint to simulate the stone covering the Ermida Nossa Senhora da Conceição.
The installation won awards from both the Society for Environmental Graphic Design (SEGD) and the Type Directors Club.

More lunch sketching finished at home.
Did you add fake chromatic abberations or are those artefacts from sharpening or something? I want this on a 1 meter canvas for my wall. I love wide stuff.
Look I made an educational thing for you. Remember this sentence.
Remember the apostrophe and how its jimmies remain unrustled by whatever is going on left or right of it. The apostrophe neither twists nor turns. It always faces in the same direction. The only direction. Because for the apostrophe, it is the right direction.
The apostrophe is a lone wolf. It operates alone because it is strong. It does not need a partner to deal with those wimpy letters. It laughs at the quotation mark twins because, unlike it, they’re worthless on their own.
The apostrophe truly could not give any less fucks about the letters around it. In fact, it eats them for breakfast. Letters don’t stand a chance against the power of the apostrophe. Wherever the apostrophe goes, they disappear. Crushed and and consumed by its contractile power.
Adobe Caslon’s apostrophe.
Okay listen, I just want you to stop using a closing single quote instead of a proper apostrophe. It’s »Pop ’em in the head«, not »Pop ‘em«, okay? It doesn’t matter where it is, it always looks just like the comma. That’s why it’s called a high comma.
Yeah, I fucked up the Fuck, I’m sorry, okay?
