The Birth of Type by theexperiential The Birth of Type by theexperiential
Adobe, the leading developer of design applications, commissioned us for a social illustration of Venus by Botticelli, the mascot and inspirational imagery behind one of their flagship products, Illustrator.

Composed of over 1,300 unique submissions of user’s favourite fonts, generated from the Adobe Facebook page for Illustrator, this project was literally created by the users, for the users. We couldn’t be more thrilled with how it turned out.

It's a quote from a user. They were saying that they thought Univers, the font, rocks.

The original was great, this one its diferent......I love it, great representation with a known style...the deepness...I like all of it (except maybe the "G")its like a font-water particles.
Excellent work.
