Nature Morte: Contemporary artists reinvigorate the Still-Life tradition

“Yes, Death. Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above one’s head, and listen to silence.

Virus DejaVu & Virus VujaDe

The Virus DejaVu (VDV) and Virus VujaDe (VVD) projects were conceived as key elements of two interrelated visual identities for the Mystetskyi Arsenal, a Ukrainian cultural centre, and Arsenale 2012, the first Kyiv Biennale of contemporary art. VirusFonts chose to develop a pre-existing open-source font project as an active acknowledgement of contemporary developments in digital technology and creative online communities. It was an approach that placed the notion of collaboration ahead of refined aesthetics and it is in this spirit that our versions are being released.

Doctrine & Doctrine Stencil

Doctrine and Doctrine Stencil are a sans-serif family which include an agreeable text face and a more muscular stencil display face. From the obscure starting point of the North Korean national airline livery, Doctrine has grown to encompass a series of more mature typographic influences. By blending elements of twentieth-century neo-grotesque, humanist and geometric styles, Doctrine is at once universal and idiosyncratic. Including a vast array of ligatures and alternate characters in five weights ranging from thin to black, Doctrine is capable of handling a multitude of testing typographical situations.
