Recollection Text and Display were drawn in close collaboration with Dominic Hofstede: designer, teacher and adjunct senior research fellow at Monash University. They was designed specfically for the launch of the third iteration of the Re:collection archive in October 2016.
The Recollection typefaces attempt to capture the spirit of Australian graphic design between 1960–1990. It refers to this rich period by looking inward, through the well-established intentions and aesthetic tropes of the time, to arrive at a familiar typographic form.
