About this font family

Fonts don’t necessarily have to be created on a computer but can emerge from completely different origins. More…

As the name TapeType suggests, the set of fonts and images used to design the intro-pages of the Useless Magazine (Spring 2007) emerged from sticky tape. The Useless Magazine (From Starshot) appears twice a year coinciding with the IPSO in Munich. The Starshot Fotofactory was literally taped up in two days under the guidance of the Creative Director Lars Harmsen (FinestMagma Karlsruhe & Starshot München. Rough edges and corners, stairs and steps, as well as walls and floors were all incorporated into the fonts and lent these a rugged, striking character. Defining certain fonts merely through taped-up outlines was a particularly exciting experiment. These are abrasive and vivacious, appropriate to the material. Whole words or sentences were taped as well as individual letters, which were later digitalised as fonts. The project was sponsored by Pattex with Pattex Power Tape.
