Bikes + Fonts + 3D = Awesome
I try not to re-post every cool little thing I see on type blogs, but this one seemed like a lot of people in DT would dig it. A quick summary: a fellow in Japan mounted camera and GPS logger to his bike, and rode around his hometown tracing letters. The data gets uploaded and turned into a font. Each letter is not just the trace of his route, but includes elevation data for each point, making it 3D. The end result reminds me of Evan Roth’s Graffiti Analysis in some ways.
