IED Barcelona student Franc Navarro partnered with fellow classmate Alberto Martinez on a delicious collaboration they call Delicios Typography Experimentation. The project called for them to create a typographic design using the least amount of post production possible, while also seeking inspiration from liquids. The pair finally settled on honey due to its viscosity and warm tonalities and honey dippers with their structured layers of wood.
Using 3D software, they made 3D models in Rhinoceros and then developed them in 123D Make. After designing the layout of each letter, they laser cut them from wooden sheets.
Then the messiness began. Each letter was suspended mid-air so it could be photographed during the process as honey was drizzled onto every one.
Each drip slowly spread down each wooden letter creating a sticky, visual treat that required zero photo editing.
