We're very happy to congratulate Thea Hamrén, Interactive Art Director 2009 student, for winning second place in the previously blogged about Max Ernst competition, initiated by Moderna Museet.
Said the jury:
"[Thea's work] shows genuine understanding of Ernst's world of images. In fact, it seems like it could be part of one of his works. Aesthetically appealing, artistically sensitive and fun. It would be wonderful to have this font on our computers!"
In Thea's own words, her submission "was inspired by the works of Max Ernst and the world of surrealism I created my 'Ernst Headline' font to play with the borders between illustration, art and typography.
I worked with pencils rubbing over different surfaces to create textures, and collage."
