Eighteen-year old university student, digital artist and motion graphics designer Dan Hoopert lives, works and studies in England. Using the software Cinema 4D, Hoopert created this stunning typography project, a rendering of the alphabet with virtual 3D wire—yes, virtual nails and wire. This process stripped the serif typeface down to its essential architectural elements and forms, revealing line and beauty in what would otherwise be very basic letters.

Why this selection for today’s post, you might ask?

1. It follows the thread of ‘looking behind the scenes’ that was started a couple of weeks ago with Jonathan’s post featuring Julia Solis’ photographs.
2. It’s visually arresting.
3. It’s important to encourage students.
4. It’s Saturday—beauty is all you need!
