Typography Tuesday: Typeface Your Face

Wieden & Kennedy Tokyo launched a glasses collection (with Oh My Glasses)…and I love it. As a typeface enthusiast and glasses-wearer, this typeface-inspired glasses collection easily caught my attention.

Elements of selected typefaces went into the creation of each pair of glasses. In some cases, it was mostly the tone or feel of the typeface that dictated the style of glasses. In other cases, the connection is more direct; the lowercase Garamond “g” made up the nose section of the Garamond glasses.

Love the idea, and if I hadn’t just bought new glasses a week ago, I would have been super interested in some Futura or Helvetica glasses of my own.
