http://design.org QlockTwo: A Typographic Hand-Free Clock Design http://design.org/blog/qlocktwo-typographic-hand-free-clock-design <p>Multidisciplinary design agency Biegert &amp; Funk—based in Germany—are the minds behind the modern and sleek <a href="http://qlocktwo.com/" target="Qlock2">Qlock2</a> clock design. The QlockTwo and QlockTwo Touch use typography instead of numerals to display the time within a perfect square, and white LED lights highlight the current hour by backlighting the corresponding words, creating a statement of time rather than just a numerical marker.</p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="620" height="438" title="Design, qlock2, clock" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/01/07/qlocktwo_00.jpg?1325986150" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-images"> <div class="field-label">Images:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="408" title="Design, qlock2, clock" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/01/07/qlocktwo_09.jpg?1325986363" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="313" title="Design, qlock2, clock" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/01/07/qlocktwo_1.jpg?1325986362" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="314" title="Design, qlock2, clock" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/01/07/qlocktwo_2.jpg?1325986362" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="620" title="Design, qlock2, clock" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/01/07/qlocktwo_3.jpg?1325986363" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="178" title="Design, qlock2, clock" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/01/07/qlocktwo_08.jpg?1325986401" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="620" title="Design, qlock2, clock" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/01/07/qlocktwo_10.jpg?1325986401" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-featured"> <div class="field-label">Featured:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Not Featured </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://design.org/blog/qlocktwo-typographic-hand-free-clock-design" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://design.org/blog/qlocktwo-typographic-hand-free-clock-design#comments clock design germany industrial typography Sun, 08 Jan 2012 18:12:09 +0000 lisaandrews 4001 at http://design.org Hand-Embroidered Type Designs by Maricor/Maricar http://design.org/blog/hand-embroidered-type-designs-maricormaricar <p><a href="http://maricormaricar.com/" target="Maricor/Maricar">Maricor/Maricar</a> are twin sisters and co-designers, illustrators and animators from Australia.
