melbournestyle


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 photographed in the environment, to this typographic design device.

These remarkably succinct images are made from only the letters that spell the subject's name.

Coote calls these works 'Fontigrams' because each image is built from existing fonts.
None are hand-lettered, none are bespoke.
