Two typographers ( Pierre & Damien /Â plmd.me ) and a pro race pilot (Stef van Campenhoudt) collaborated to design a font with a Toyota iQ car.Â The car movements were tracked using custom software built withÂ OpenFrameworks designed by Zach Lieberman. The set-up consists of an airplane hangar,Â overhead camera and the car with four markers. As the car sways from side to side, the points get near and far apart to one another creating splines that overlap in a very organic and poetic way. Font was post-processed by Pierre & Damien and availableÂ for you to download here:Â nl.toyota.be/iqfont. See also more "making of" pictures onÂ flickr.
Created by Zach Lieberman in collaboration with Google’s Data Arts team, ‘Land Lines’ is a web experiment that lets you explore Google Earth satellite imagery through gesture. “Draw” to find satellite images that match your every line; “Drag” to create an infinite line of connected rivers, highways and coastlines.
