What’s the meaning of life?

Type Design Workshop with Johannes Breyer & Fabian Harb from dinamo.

The task was to go to the university library and search for any interesting typeface and make a representation/reconstruction of it. The final result had to be a poster. I chose a sans-serif font from the soviet book about cosmos called “To the Stars”.  My poster series is called “What’s the meaning of life? 42”. The number 42 is, in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, “The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything”, calculated by an enormous supercomputer over a period of 7.5 million years.
