Another of @benjohnstondesign’s greatest (digitally fabricated) hits: Some swirling sculptural letterforms, produced for #theonethatgotawayshow in 2015. We are pretty sure mild profanity has never looked so good—the cursive embellishments are tight and, in spots, the text almost drips off the wall. 📷 courtesy of of Ben Johnson.

@benjohnstondesign’s sleekly lettered murals are all over Toronto and now he's all over our blog for a #HotPopSpotlight. We’ve collaborated with Ben on several projects over the years and the work he's done making the jump from 2D graphic design to 3D form is inspiring. “It’s really opened up a new way of thinking and a range of projects for clients like Aston Martin and Adobe that I never would have even thought of doing before,” says Ben of #3Dprinting, #lasercutting, and #laseretching
. .
📷: Above is a ornate 3D printed plaque that he collaborated on for Aston Martin Magazine in 2014 (#tbt!) with @marksimmonsdesign. It was produced as a visual testimonial to sit alongside an article on how 3D printing has revolutionized automotive design. 🏎️😎⠀

These commemorative lapel pins were made from the copper roof of the old parliament building in Ottawa, and each decorative insert was laser cut out of recycled kraft card and doubles as a display!

Comparing the surface finish of FDM and SLS 3D prints. By using filaments, FDM emphasizes the layers of the print, while using powder the SLS process creates a more granular texture. Which is better for your project? Learn more on our blog, link in bio
