Hushed Writing: Pepe Gimeno & TDC Holiday Party
Special TDC Event — December 3, 2015: “Hushed Writing” Exhibition Opening and TDC Holiday Party
Pepe Gimeno is a Spanish graphic designer and typographer based in Valencia, whose recent book “Hushed Writing” cannot be read in the conventional way: only a graphic interpretation is possible. This act of deliberately separating form from content has transformed the graphic structure of the book into its narrative. Type Directors Club’s 2015 holiday party celebrates an exhibition about Pepe’s work.
The project is made entirely from materials found on the beach. Using them, Pepe Gimeno has created evocative approximations of different forms of writing, ancient hieroglyphics, binary alphabets and a number of other motifs, managing to convert fragments of stone, sticks, plastic bottle tops, parts of toys, shells, cigarette butts and broken glass into messages replete with expressiveness and enormous poetic force.
