Typographic experimentation is an essential part of the SPIN studios practice. Playful expressions blending the analogue with the digital, making ‘conceptual lettering’. Hybrid type forms that spring from conceptual conceits. The studios aesthetic brings together the rigorous, the refined and the irreverent in a search for new surprising letterforms. The outputs of this process can be seen in an occasional journal published by Unit Editions – SPIN: Adventures in Typography.
