Moveable type final result

Walking thought the final type-arena someone discover a story like climb this mountain, find the right place for PiPi, you can use the stairs too, but take care not to fall down, and say hi when you enjoy the view from the berg 2; but there is a good chance that your story would have been a totally different one.

Making type like this is not very easy.
You have to think in forces. Top to bottom.
You have to think in space. Front & back, left & right.
You have to think big. Be small yourself.
You have to keep the overview. Don't get lost in space.

Well done boys & girls! 'Mountain' and 'hi' are my favourites, and 'view' has a very good position. Because 'view' has so much space around it, it's also the most legible one. It's easy to see that camera lens is too small for these monumental indoor letterings - so for how long it is possible to come and take a look myself?

Fine! You have got your working fine... why do you not have got a weblog about your typo activities?

Wat je allemaal niet met kartonnen dozen kan doen... 'View' vind ik de sterkste. 'Store managers Nightmare' hou ik ook van.
