    Self-taught London designer Joe Prytherch landed “the dream job”, doing posters for Boiler Room, a worldwide organiser of electronic music parties and events. The series is extremely varied and often referential, with compositions placed in a recurring square frame. Typefaces typically change from poster to poster, making the absolute most out of those licenses.

      The distressed face in the last picture appears to be Hoefler & Co.’s interpretation of the Fell Types. The diacritics don’t quite match, though – while the ogonek is less blotchy, the kropka is more organic and also better positioned.
