buggy cool

a few days ago, I posted a flow sheet on how to pick a font.

now here is another way to pick a font: risk your bowel health, grow e-coli in a petri dish, and you'll get a seriously cool font.

at least the judges of the Dutch Design Awards thought so. they awarded Jelte van Abbema the Rado Prize last november for his innovative font design which was actually printed in e-coli bacteria. van abbema stamped bacteria into the paper and incubated it. He needed just the right humidity and warmth for the organisms to multiply and die. the font is called symbiosis.

dude, the results are totally sick (ha...finally a legit use of the teenage word sick, which means cool). every letter is unique in shape and color [and colony count].
