Funky Friday: Rap and the Art of Typography

Rap, fonts, design… what’s not to like?

When presented with the opportunity to submit his work to the International Society of Typographic Designers, the typography guild in the UK, Mark Modimola married his two loves; hip-hop and history. Modimola, a Pretoria designer working for Shift Joe Public, submitted a box of posters that reflect the journey of hip-hop, with each typographic poster highlighting various aspects of the genre. Included were LP records with the songs featured.

If you’re into fonts, font-based design and/or rap music, take a look here for more about this weird and wonderful work of passion.
