Kickstarter:
2012 Typographic Wall Calendar

The Typographic Wall Calendar is a project I’ve been working on since 2009.
The calendar is made of exactly the number of used keyboard keys that represent the year.

♣ Read an Interview about the Project on the Kickstarter Blog

♦ Read the in-depth concept paper as a PDF


“…stunning reinterpretation of a calendar is a masterful example of how a designer can completely flip a genre signifier on its head. Geisler reimagines calendars in order to change the way we visualize time, and in turn, redefines what it means to save the date.”

Capital Love

Capital Love is a fresh, hand drawn Font. The alphabets vivid ductus reminds of the dynamic qualities that can be found in Keith Haring’s graffiti drawings. All shapes are drawn individually and do not oblige to a geometrical system. The font contains two sets of capital letters decorated with hearts. By pressing a lowercase button an alternative uppercase letter will appear.

Capital Love is a part of the Light Hearted Font Collection that is inspired by a recording of Jean Baudrillard with the title, “Die Macht der Verführung” (The Power of Seduction) from 2006. Further inspiration came from the article, “The shape of the heart: I’m all yours”. The heart represents sacred and secular love: a bloodless sacrifice. by British writer Louisa Young printed in EYE magazine (#43) London, 2002.

Support for international communication:
The font file contains 553 glyphs. Capital Love supports Cyrillic and eastern european languages. Everything a typographer needs for international communication.

    Echinacea

    Echinacea by Harald Geisler

    I admit the flowers in this picture (Echinacea) I had forgotten in my studio.
    After weeks they dried out, but they kept their color.
    At one point they fell down on my couch and spread everywhere.
    Since chance is an important factor in my creation process,
    I decided to work with it and to experiment and try to capture this beauty.

    I never meant to publish this picture, but after I showed my experiments to a friend he insisted that I should print them. As a tribute to the old masters of still life painting that can be found from the 16th to 18th century throughout Europe, especially in the Netherlands and Germany. My friend first thought that I had taken a picture from one of those hundred-year-old Dutch prints. He was convinced the little seeds that lay on the front glass were flies surrounding the fleeting beauty of the fading flowers. While I never intensely studied the old masters, somehow I knew their pictures. Their stillness lures to dwell in the picture. It is the meditational aspect in viewing, or the contemplative rest these pictures offer that fascinates me.


    Detail:


    Echinacea by Harald Geisler, Detail 4

    The black background and subject matter too are common ground with the “old masters still life”.
    One difference I’d like to point out.
    You’ll find layers, such as objects in front of each other and with it depth,
    but surprisingly you’ll never find the illusion of perspective.
