A genuine typographic alphabet fully designed by American artist James Thompson in rendition to the XXth century style and movement known as De Stijl.
Meaning “The Style” in Dutch, this artistic movement – which englobed artists such as Theo van Doesburg, Piet Mondrian, J. J. P. Oud and Gerrit Rietveld, in between others – sought the integration of all arts into each of their creations, searching for a uniformity in all areas of expression from design to painting and architecture.
About James Thompson, in his own words:
“I am a Global Arts & Design student from Dallas, TX, USA. I am currently attending Texas A&M University in College Station, TX. I have been doing graphic design work for 5 years. Other mediums of Art & Design I work in are painting, mixed media, sculpture, 35mm film, and digital photography. Some of my artistic influences are Cy Twombly, Piet Modrian, Robert Rauschenberg, and Barnett Newman. I love to travel and learn about new cultures. Other interests of mine include cinema, sociology, coffee, and good music.”
