Dutch designer Jelte Van Abbema recently won the €10,000 Rado Prize for promising young designers. His awarded body of work includes Symbiosis, a project involving printing with bacterial cultures on paper and billboards. The letterforms change shape, saturation, and hue as the micro-organisms grow and die. The seriousness with which it’s all taken seems a bit overblown to me, but it’s still a neat idea. I also like the minimalist text-only styling of Van Abbema’s personal webpage.
