The First Ever FontBike

    Uncategorized | Ivo Gabrowitsch | January 4, 2010

    We have other posts on our plate, but we simply couldn’t pass this one up.

    Russian-born and Israel-based graphic designer Yanek Iontef – designer of the grungy and versatile FF Cartonnage – is also a bicycle adept and big fan of bike culture. His collection of gorgeous photographs of type and lettering can be found on his Photolog, while his interest in bicycles finds an outlet on his Bicyclog. His most recent project is not a new type design, but his new bike: a single speed based on a 1989 Bottecchia frame. As the bike’s colour scheme is black and yellow the obvious thing for Yanek was to apply the FontShop and FontFont logos on its frame. It is a work in progress. Yanek still wants to improve the bicycle’s front, specifically the stem and the handle bars, but that doesn’t stop him from from enjoying it in its current state in the streets of Tel Aviv.
