I was asked to create the letter Q for UPPERCASE Magazine’s “Beautiful Bitmaps” project, so I created ‘pixels’ out of hundreds of pieces of silk ribbon.
For issue 15, we invited 26 typographers, designers and illustrators to make beautiful bitmaps by taking this vestigial part of digital type—the bitmap—and making it into something to be newly appreciated.
You can see all 26 amazing pieces at UPPERCASE Magazine’s website and buy prints of the work at Society6
