Heavy metal printing lot
Sam Mallett, a graphic design student from The University of Wales, has done a series of prints using the original metal type versions of Neue Haas Grotesk and Helvetica.
From Sam: “I did a short work placement in Zürich and had the opportunity to play with some lead type, so I designed and printed this poster to illustrate a small but important change in the typeface’s development. It’s an A3 poster with 72pt. Halbfett Haas Grotesk in one colour and 72pt. Halbfett Helvetica in another. I printed and numbered 100 posters in various colours. You can see the colours and photos of the printing process on my Flickr page. To make some funds for my final major project I was hoping to sell a few.
