Graphic Designer Creates 3D Calligraphy That Lifts Off the Page

Posted on

If you’re a graphic designer, you know how clients are – they want things to “pop” off the page, lift off and take flight. Things don’t always turn out like that – unless you are Tolga Girgin, a Turkish graphic designer and electrical engineer.

Tolga Girgin’s experiments with calligraphy consist of letterforms perfectly drawn into perspective, so that the typography seems to curl and hover right above the page. The effect he achieves with clever use of shading and a perfectly aligned photo camera, is remarkable: the letters fold and float above the sketchbook, too pretty and colorful to be trapped by a piece of paper.
