Typeforce is an annual typographic exhibition hosted by Firebelly Design and the Co-Prosperity Sphere.

With help from Tyler Deal, DDL's Printshop manager and A+ human, I put together a dense pattern of fake news pulling from the alt-right's finest circles of hell. And the rest was magic, brewed up by Tyler and DDL Principal Jason Teegarden-Downs. They expertly printed 30-some layers of ink across 12 panes of plexiglass, and assembled a custom pine frame to house it.
