Enjoy Peter Korsman’s typographical nirvana
Independent designer Peter Korsman on his pursuit for typographical mastery
Having stepped straight out of art academy in 2004 to start his own studio, ATTAK, designer Peter Korsman (aka Autograph) has spent most of his creative career pushing typography to its limits. "Everything is language," he says. "Our thoughts are words and typography is words made visual. It's the basis for graphic design."
Korsman's fascination with the language-based discipline has led him to appreciate those fonts and typefaces that evoke a personal touch, when he "can feel the excitement of the designer, and get excited too." As such, the digital development towards variable and animated fonts has continued to inspire his own work. "It's wizardry to me, and also pure eye candy," he enthuses. "I'm in awe of the skills and results, and it forces me to redefine typography."
Despite choosing to part ways with ATTAK in 2016, Korsman's typography goals remain the same: "To make it a vehicle for ideas, thoughts, experiment, craftsmanship and my visual language." See more: www.autograph.works
