Artist/graphic designer Tom Davie is behind studiotwentysix2, a multidisciplinary studio based in Cincinnati, OH. Davie works with a number of mediums, having designed graphics for everything from skate decks and T-shirts to posters and packaging.

The posters you see here are part of a typographic series where Davie examines a specific letterform or a typeface. For the Fraktur "Blackletter" poster, Davie "photographed [a] 3-D two-tone blackletter paper sculpture overlaid with an original graphite line drawing." The result is a bold, monolithic letter with incredible depth and detail. It puts a new spin on the traditional, two-dimensional world of posters.

Check out Davie's website, where you'll find many of his designs for sale in poster, postcard, and, in some cases, iPhone case formats. Also of note is his "Bottled Food" series, which re-imagines packaging for many common foods to astonishingly grotesque effect.
