‘dog as fonts’ by grafisches büro

created by vienna-based studio grafisches büro is a series of images that playfully interpret which dogs could be related to which typeface –
a dalmation as courier, or perhaps a german shepherd as helvetica. the work observes each pet for their various characteristics in
the same capacity as comparing fonts – finding the similarities in that of nature and that of a typographer’s design.
the poster was printed using a silk screen technique on sheets of 1000 by 700 mm and published in a limited edition box.
