The ‘T’ shirt project by Masashi Kawamura… brilliant!!
” â€˜Tâ€™ shirts are T shirts that was designed to have the silhouette of 5 famous typefaces; Helvetica, Caslon, Baskerville, Courier, and Cooper Black. In the world of typography, terms such as typeface, character, body, etc are used to describe the form of a letter. The reason why they use expressions closely related to a human body, is perhaps because each different letter has a distinct quality and personality, in a similar way that us humans are all unique.In the designing process of these shirts, I aimed to capture the character of each typeface and tried to give them a unique look and presence once worn.”
