Update: Dani Loureiro

Dani Loureiro

 

Illustrator and graphic artist Dani Loureiro produced some incredible pieces for Back in 5 minutesa typography and custom lettering exhibition at Salon91 in March.

 

All of these pieces were completed specifically for the show inspired by urban signage. Dani used the opportunity to experiment with a number of different techniques such as lazer cutting wood and perspex and engraving into plexiglass.

 

She didn’t use any pre-existing typefaces, hand drawing everything first. You’ll find a description from her under some of the pieces, the rest were finished in vector.

The type was lazer engraved into the glass of the frame which was layered over the hand drawn patterned artwork. With this piece I was playing with depth and the shadows that the lazer engraved glass cast onto the patterned paper below.
