LAPPWERK 1- 3, a typographic poster series of my patchwork alphabet, was awarded a diploma during Visuelt 2013. A nomination in the open category is surely a creative treat! 

An intriguing combination of typography and photography. Good depth in both image and form makes you continuously discover new things. Nostalgic solution and a nice color palette.
