I made a poster with a glow-in-the-dark secret!
From Bruce Mau’s excellent Incomplete Manifesto (to be clear, it is a page full of great tips for designers and artists) comes a rule I live by:
Don’t clean your desk; you might find something in the morning that you can’t see tonight.
The blue layer is regular silk-screen ink, the invisible layer is glow-in-the-dark! It was difficult to take a good picture of the glow-in-the-dark (this was in my tiny bathroom so it was nice and dark) but this should give you some idea.
I still have around 30 prints, all different (some are in pink & lime!) so if anyone wants one, buy me a beer and we’ll talk!

(The kanji in the background say 少女時代 or “girls’ generation in old hand drawn Japanese lettering; I found the 少女 somewhere and guessed my own version of the 時代 (good type drawing practice, insert geeky derp heeere)

On March 9th the Gerrit Noordzij award for typography was awarded to Karel Martens. The Hague’s Type & Media grad students made posters for the previous winner, the amazing Wim Crouwel - several of them are presented here for your viewing pleasure!
If you look closely, you’ll see how each poster is actually one letter of the alphabet, and together they spell out Wim Crouwel ‘12.
