This past week I visited House Industries’ Letters & Ligatures exhibit in Los Angeles. House Industries is a Delaware based type foundry that has been producing some of the most unique custom lettering, illustrations, and product packaging since 1993.This exhibit features a collection of prints, patterns, installations, and sculptures. Not to mention a six foot ampersand that is absolutely breathtaking. It was beautifully displayed at Shepard Fairey’s (which is a name I assume you are all familiar with)  personal design studio and art gallery, Subliminal Projects. The on-sight curator Jeremy Kaplan explained to me that Subliminal Projects is dedicated in showcasing up and coming designers and artist using graphic art, illustration, and photograph as their medium. As a graphic design student and an all time lover of typography, it was a very inspirational exhibit. The guys at House Industries really outdone themselves showcasing their work.
