Paul Nicholson Shares Aphex Twin Design Blueprints

  Designer Paul Nicholson has contributed to this month’s celebration of the 25-year anniversary of the release of Aphex Twin’s immortal Selected Ambient Works album, by sharing the blueprints for his original logo and typeface designs on Instagram.     “The original Aphex Twin logo was drawn by hand using circle templates and rulers in late 1991,” Nicholson wrote on Instagram. “With there being many incorrect versions of this logo floating about, I thought it about time to release the definitive logo construction.”    

NUMBER 3 presents APHEX TWIN LOGO CONSTRUCTION It is exactly 25 years since the release of Selected Ambient Works – February 12th 1992. The original Aphex Twin logo was drawn by hand using circle templates and rulers in late 1991. With there being many incorrect versions of this logo floating about, I thought it about time to release the definitive logo construction. Enjoy. Designed by Paul Nicholson, 1991.

A post shared by Paul Nicholson (@number3__) on Feb 15, 2017 at 3:10am PST He also shared details about the ‘official’ Aphex Twin typeface, known as Xylem. Designed for the 1992 Xylem Tube EP, Nicholson hinted on Instagram that the font will soon be available in OTF and TTF formats.  

NUMBER 3 presents THE APHEX TWIN TYPEFACE Based on the Aphex Twin logotype, this typeface was intended for the sleeve of Xylem Tube, released in June 1992. Richard and I had started working on some ideas for the sleeve, but due to miscommunication, R&S went ahead and created ‘Star Fish’ artwork. The typeface remained unused. OTF and TTF font files will be available soon. Designed by Paul Nicholson, 1992. Remastered 2015.
