    Flex – Fred Aldous – Laser cut type – For the recent SF10x10 project – celebrating a decade of Superfried – I developed a new numeral style to complete the final ten selected. The new set worked well as part of 10x10, but deserved a project of its own. I am always looking for new techniques and mediums, so this time, rather than taking them into C4D I decided to create the numbers for real. Art and craft supplier, Fred Aldous had recently created a sign for the Superfried studio door, so when they said they were keen to collaborate on a project, I jumped at the chance. Despite being around since 1886, Fred Aldous have moved with the times and accurately laser cut my numerals in translucent neon and black perspex – something I had always wanted to do. The results were awesome. To continue the experimentation further, I then dabbled with After Effects using some simple animation techniques. – www.superfried.com – http://www.superfried.com/case-study/flex/ – https://www.fredaldous.co.uk/ Read Less
