| The Fontigram was developed by Melbourne graphic designer and writer Maree Coote. |
After creating various photographic alphabets for childrens books and graphic design projects including Alphabet City, Coote further fine-tuned her vision by moving beyond 'found object' letters photgraphed in the environment, to this typographic design device. These remarkably succinct images made from only the letters that spell the subject's name. She calls these works 'Fontigrams' because they are built from existing fonts. None are hand-lettered, none are bespoke fonts. Every font used in the creation of an image is from a standard Mac font suitcase.
