The Arc-Com Design Studio collaborated with House Industries to create the Glyph Collection, a modern offering that celebrates the beauty of typographic forms in textiles.
Founded in 1993, by Andy Cruz, HouseIndustries has created fonts that have helped the world communicate for nearly three decades.
“The creation of letters & numbers for House has always wandered somewhere between fine art and function—The alphabet as a muse to create patterns that morph glyphs into something that transcends an isolated character is what inspired The Glyph Collection” – Andy Cruz.
Pound pattern: Aliases include The Number Sign, Hashtag and The Octothorp. The simple four stroke Pound Symbol is now known for skewing contrasting strokes that build vivid woven linear patterns.
Tilde pattern: Originally inked by medieval scribes, this accent mark moves from amplifying pronunciation to sculpted rows of distinguished eye-candy.
X pattern: Forms that take rhythmic cues from the shapes found in musical notation multiply to indicate unknown variations of interlocking hues.
i pattern: A lowercase script ‘i’ with just enough succulent curves to make you forget it’s a vowel and create images of waves dotted with color.
Parentheses pattern: Utilized as a typographic “fence” to hold supplementary information, House Industries decided to stagger and rotate them to build a modulating abstract structure.
Typography pattern: A supporting color system designed to add strong or subtle punctuation to the Glyph Collection.
The individual patterns found in the Glyph Collection possess their own strong personality and purpose along with the ability to star in their own interior show.
