Concrete words

Hello Monday! And a great find first thing in the morning…when my love of text and typography, and brutal concrete architecture collide. A prefab style kit of concrete shapes that come together to make a concrete typeface created by the British, NYC-based designer David McGillivray. It is inspired by London’s brutalist architecture, specifically that of the Hayward Gallery (a great space might I add). ‘It is a concrete modular alphabet that can be created using 7 shapes, which are cast into 14 blocks of concrete in total. Nothing has been added to the images…it’s all real concrete.’ Clean. Minimal. Beautiful. Perfection.

“I design experiences. That means, digital products, interactions, identities, and environments…I tap into cultural nuances, engage with emerging themes and solve problems, always aiming to create relevant, appropriate solutions that look as refined as they feel.” – David McGillivray
