Katerina Orlikova is a young graphic designer from the Czech Republic, who enjoys a playful mind with sentiment and childish spontaneity. She always wanted to create something very personal which would let people reminisce about their peaceful childhood years, when nothing was important and the world appeared to be so colorful and gorgeous. After attending a seminar at the university on ”Light and Typography” she decided to create five typographic kaleidoscopes (a combination of the Greek words: kalos - meaning beautiful; eidos - form; and skopeo - I see). Some magical pictures appear before your eyes as light goes through the glittering glass. Katerina used characters made from transparent colored material and converted them into abstract pictures so that people wouldn’t be able to recognize the letters. Using an appropriate type of letters and a printed cover she made the kaleidoscopes with each one representing a type of typeface (serif typefaces, sans serif typefaces, ornamental typefaces …). She admits, “I have not been able to make the bodies of the kaleidoscopes by myself so my handy granddad helped me out! As it turned out, this has been family work that I enjoyed very much!’’.
