The best typographic tribute to Star Wars so far
When Buenos Aires-based Fernando de Carabassa broke the Internet a couple of weeks ago, all the Jedis and Stormtroopers of this world rejoiced. This Star Wars launched his poster series Swiss Star Wars in full multicolor mode. His massive use of Helvetica is combined with shapes and patterns reminding us that this epic space adventure is as classic as the font he used for his intergalactic tribute to Yoda and his friends. MilkMade asked him a few questions on this very curated form of fan art for the Force Awakens. “It started as a project at the university. The assignment was to make a system of pieces that work together typographically, and visually. I chose Star Wars because I’ve loved the franchise since I was eight years old” he says. “I named it Swiss because it’s based on the primary international typographic style that is Helvetica, which was created by graphic designers in early 1950’s Switzerland”. We are more than eager to see what’s next in this long battle for inspiring, pop-cultured typographic design. Check his lightsabers here.
