We Don’t Work—We Play: A Handmade Type Exhibit

Four German design students from the Köln International School of Design recently initiated a project called We Don’t Work—We Play to celebrate handmade type. They invited other designers to submit a rendering of the phrase in any medium for a gallery show at Plattforms Cologne. Check out some of the best designs from the exhibit:
