Hipster words is a serie of posters created to promote the new Sudtipos typeface Hipster Script and is designed by Ale Paul with the creative phrases written by Jon Parker. Hipster Script is another of Ale Paul’s habitual attempts at trying to reduce the divide between manual and digital. In this case, he tried to articulate brush lettering, trying to get the computer to emulate continuous painting. The process wasnt that different from his work with Feel Scripts shot at computerized commercial lettering, though here we have a more casual contrast, rather than the high seriousness of the Copperplate script. Swashes, alternates, ligatures — too many of them, all trying to make the interplay between the tool’s two extreme widths remain faithful to hand movement subtleties. He also toyed with ligatures containing apostrophes, something he hass never seen before. Hipster Script received a Judge’s choice Certificate of Excellence at theType Directors of New York and was selected to be part of the Bienal Tipos Latinos 2012. In this post a series of posters created with this new font, enjoy!
