LA///DESIGN///HOUSE INDUSTRIES’ “LETTERS & LIGATURES” AT SUBLIMINAL PROJECTS
The undisputed masters of vintage and mid-century typography, HOUSE INDUSTRIES (the Delaware-based brainchild of designers RICH ROAT and ANDY CRUZ), proved that “Font’s Not Dead” last weekend when their “Letters and Ligatures” show opened at SHEPARD FAIREY’s own SUBLIMINAL PROJECTS GALLERY in Echo Park. Billed as “A new exhibition of prints, patterns, installations and sculptures based on House Industries’ 15-year excursion into the alphabetical world,” the show proved to be a typographic wonderland for font freaks and design nerds who live by the company’s maxim that “without standardized lexigraphy, we could not create the essence of truth, allowing history to pass on the tongues of those who change it to suit their needs.” HAVE A LOOK:
