A Mirror

A Mirror

When I was recently working on my personal website relaunch (www.stefanseifert.com) I stumbled casually upon a photo series by Peter Lindbergh for Christian Dior griffe. It shows beautiful Natalia Vodianova in sensual black and white pictures. And it urged me to put them beside my own Christian Dior typeface researches (purely artistic, no commercial benefits for me).

And there it was again: the knowledge why, at all, I am designing typefaces. Letters are made for beautiful sensible woman. Their lines reflect those of their bodies. And not only.

It is something magic that connects them both in my eyes. Maybe it’s about the inner nature of forms and why they so often serve as muses to us.
