Face Reality as it Is: Anamorphic Typography Inspiration

face reality as it isEverything we see is a perspective and not the actual truth. And if you’re familiar with anamorphic typography, you’ll quickly realize how we all look at things a little differently, depending on the angle we’re coming from. So designer Thomas Quinn has created a rather moving anamorphic type piece that illustrates this also asking everyone to “Face Reality as it Is,” of course from your perspective. Quinn’s piece was crafted in a room above his parent’s garage, and given the tight quarters, it happens to make a perfect place to see the complexity of the design across the wall from different vantage points and how it all comes together from the right view.

Quinn also recently did a new anamorphic typography installation for the Chicago Design Museum, which is a pop-up museum that set up shop downtown Chicago back in June 2013.

Quinn said about the experimental type:

Anamorphic typography is a spatial experience in which an arrangement of letters look perfectly set from a single point within a space, while looking wildly distorted from any other perspective.
