There is an organization of printers in Holland that still preserves the medieval guild practice of assigning an apprentice to the task of creating something that proves his or her skills. No apprentices anymore but the assignment is given to a different company each year. This year it was my company's turn and it turned out to be my job. Since the design was to be presented to the mayor of the town where the annual meeting was to be held, I created a design that showed the connectedness of this 'TwinTown' Etten-Leur: A picture is represented by letters of varying density thus creating a photographic effect. In the head on the left the name of the first town 'Etten' can be read and the second head features the other town 'Leur'. (Click on the image to see a larger view so as to see the letters.)
