University of Reading law building
Did you know this was designed, built and lived in by Alfred Waterhouse? He’s my favourite Victorian architect (as well as a lot of other people’s).
Manchester Town Hall. Manchester Museum. Natural History Museum, London. Cruciform Building, UCL. Reading Town Hall. Museum of English Rural Life, Reading.
He had such an affect on this country and Reading in particular - we did a blog on it too!
Like the egypts had their sticks to carve in sand the first cuneiform inscriptions, Andrew van der Merwe, freelance designer and calligrapher is drawing designs into this very ephemeral medium. Over ten years of practicing and learning he has developed his own instruments and tools to do his sand lettering. Anja Wiehl documented this process in her pictures and above you can see the results.
A consistent favourite

Known for his persuasive, up-beat style of communication his work is hold in a permanent collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum London and in the Cooper-Hewitt Museum New York. Words and language are an important part of Burrill’s output and he has developed a distinctive voice that is sought after not only by collectors of his posters and prints but also by clients including Wallpaper* magazine, The Economist, The British Council, London Underground and The Design Museum.
Working together with some interesting printers and designers he always creates interesting artoworks which make you think. The video above shows you a little sequence of the way he works. The traditional way of typography is still today the most tensious one. Enjoy it!
