Type is the new tuna

Inspired by the way metal type can be packed together in tight formations, Pavel Kulinsky decided to put 3D typographic characters in a can. Why? Well, why the heck not!

I think Russian designer Pavel Kulinsky is onto something with these wonderfully colourful TypoCans.

A designer of Moscow department store window displays by day, he started playing with typographic compositions in his spare time, just for fun and to improve his skills. Inspired by the way metal type (used in letterpress printing) can be packed together in tight formations, the idea emerged to put 3D typographic characters in a can. Why? Well, why the heck not!

Kulinsky says this is not a commercial project, but if he ever decides to make them available I would definitely buy a can or two. Just to stock up, you know.
