TwoPoints.Net striking bold typeface for ESPN's NBA Preview
"We almost forgot how much fun it is to draw letters" says TwoPoints.Net of their latest project, a typeface so strikingly bold which seems ideal for the ESPN Magazine's special "NBA Preview" issue.
"When thinking of the actual basketball, one immediately thinks of the thin black lines which are so characteristic for the ball. We therefore designed the counter spaces as thin lines" explained Martin Lorenz to It's Nice That.
The designers worked closely to develop the letterforms with ESPN art director, Eric Paul, and according to INT "their collaboration was so successful the two are currently reunited to develop another upcoming typeface for the magazine".
"The design had to to have a reminiscence of basketball" comments the renowned Hamburg-based design studio TwoPoints.Net which was founded in 2007 with the aim to do exceptional design work. They do deliver.
