A graphic designer takes her letter love into 3D with typographic sculptures

Alabama-based artist June Corley worked as an advertising art director and graphic designer for many years doing what she called “playing with type”.

Continuing her affinity for letter forms and bringing her play-space into three-dimensions, Corley now creates typographic sculptures.

In her work, we see how vintage signage and discarded letterpress type can be transformed into playful characters.

The curve of a “D” becomes the belly of a bird, and the prongs of an “E” become legs.

This body of work began when Corley moved from Atlanta to a cabin in Alabama and was inspired by a chaotic stack of her collected vintage signs.
