I liked anamorphic typography before finding out what it actually is. Just sounds cool right? Ok, it doesn’t it sounds ridiculously pretentious. But I just like saying it. Or writing it. Anamorphic Typography. Beautiful! In all seriousness though, the concept behind the term is pretty spectacular. Basically, these are three-dimensional typographical installations which – according to the artist Joseph Egan – challenge the notion “that graphic design can only be realised in 2D”. No idea if that notion needed to be challenged, but I certainly like the outcome!
The video below gives you a better idea of how exactly the installations are set up.
