Hi, I'm Matt Vlach. I'm a graphic designer working in California, & practicing across type, book, installation, interaction, and identity design. I like big ideas, using my hands, collaborating with others, and trying things that I haven't tried before. Let's work together???
Typeface, Specimen, & Textile
Eternalist is a Display Typeface concieved out of various philosophical concepts of time: Eternalism and Presentism. Designed of mostly hard edges, and informed by thin diagonal strokes reminiscent of calligraphic form, the typeface is aimed to operate as a graphic tool for impactful headlines & graphic patterning. A 52 pg. book in an edition of 25 was printed, cut, and bound by hand. A woven textile was produced to demonstrate the typeface in use.
Published with Basset Hound Press, and John Anton Malinowski of Chapped House. CHAPPED Anthology takes from French New Wave and Dada era influence, using a hard candy as a symbol for the choice to savour or not savour an ephemeral object. 500 pgs. Available at bassethoundpress.com/Chapped
