In 2010, the Gagosian Gallery London presented Crash, “a major group exhibition … which takes its title from the famous novel by JG Ballard”. The accompanying catalog and poster as well as the venue were designed by Graphic Thought Facility, using Aldo Novarese’s iconic Stop as the main typeface.
Pockets on the foam-padded plastic cover showed photographs Ballard took of his Ford Zephyr following a car accident in 1973.
The ‘H’ has been modified by adding the missing right stem. As the left part has not been adjusted, the letter looks too wide now. Since Stop is such a weird design, the typeface is very often subject to customizations.
