TypograFriday: Alida Rosie Sayer


Whether or not you’ve read Slaughterhouse Five, with its four-dimensional Tralfamadorians who can see every instant of their lives at once, I think we can all appreciate the marvelously interesting dimensional typography Alida Rosie Sayer made using bits of its text.


A recent graduate of the Glasgow School of Art, her work is thoughtful and interesting. There’s a short interview with her over at Yatzer. A few more of these Slaughterhouse Five pieces, a design for film titles, a beautifully reconfigured Yellow Pages, plus a of her influences after the jump.

I looked up the two experimental type-collage artists she cites as inspirations in her interview, Edwin Pickstone and Sam Winston. And dang are they incredible too.
