About

These are my types of butts...

Hello!

I’m Viktor Hertz, a 36-year old graphic designer based in Uppsala, Sweden. I enjoy being creative, hang out with fun people and cuddle with cats. And, apparently, making typographical butts. I started freelancing as a graphic designer in 2011, and since then some of my clients have been Ray-Ban, Universal Music Group and Greenpeace. My most well known projects are my Honest Logos and Pictogram Movie/Music Posters, and I've been featured at these blogs, among others:

Earlier this year, I made a project called 'Typornography', where I made minimal illustrations of bodies and various body parts, only using text characters in different fonts; Body Types, Pussy Types, Dick Types and Butt Types. The whole project can be seen at my Behance portfolio (you will need an account, since it's considered "Adult Content" by Behance). Or, you can see them all on my Instagram highlight stories. 

I posted the Butt Types album on my Facebook page, and it got viral- it's the most shared and liked project I've ever made and the comments sections alone are worth going through, trust me. Shoutout to everyone who shared and interacted- you really blessed this silly project with even sillier comments and gif reactions. <3 

So, I figured I should make a poster of it, and since I love Kickstarter and has made six successful projects in the past, I never thought of any other options- it's just the perfect platform. If you're new here, you can read more about how it works here

The Butt Types

I originally made 50 of these, but had to narrow it down to 30 to make a balanced and nice layout, suitable for a poster. I've tried all possible variations and have been very thorough choosing the best options for everything. I really kern about this stuff. 

Mockup of the final poster (50x70 cm version)

The fonts I chose for this poster are: Adobe Garamond Pro, American Typewriter, Arial, Big Caslon, Bodoni, Calibri, Century Gothic, Comic Sans, Chopin Script, Copperplate, Didot, DIN, Eurostile, Futura, Geneva, Georgia, Helvetica, ITC Benguiat, Joane, Klavika Bold, Lato, Mrs Eaves, Optima, Papyrus, Playfair Display, Steelfish, Times New Roman, Trajan Pro, VAG Rundschrift D and Zapfino. 

I apologize to everyone who wanted Wingdings included- but, it just didn't... eehhrm, look very good, once squeezed in together with the other cheeks. The balance was all off, and I had to choose aesthetics before assthletics, sorry.

Here they are, presented in the same layout as the actual poster:  

Sizes & paper quality

Even though digital printing has become better and more efficient, I will still use traditional offset printing, since this technique produces the best and most durable quality of the print. I will be printing on a paper with 170g/sm weight (standard poster quality and thickness)All posters will be signed, so they're probably gonna be worth a buttload of money in the future when I'm (in)famous. 

I chose to make this poster available in two sizes (depending on how big you prefer your butts); 30 x 40 cm (11.8” x 15.7”) and 50 x 70 cm (19.7” x 27.6”). The large poster will fit both in a 50x70 cm frame and a 61x91 cm (24"x35¾") frame with a mat (from IKEA, for example).  

Some mockups of the framed poster: 

30 x 40 cm version

Shipping & delivery

All posters will be signed, wrapped in silk paper and packed thoroughly and safe in thick cardboard tubes. Worldwide shipping, est. delivery in October 2019. Possibly in early November, if things take a bit longer than expected, just a heads up. 

Shipping cost outside Sweden is 120 SEK ($12/€11), so if you wanna save some money, I suggest you share this project and try to order together with friends. You can just add the amount in question to your pledge, if you want more posters. The reason it costs this much to ship, is because of the fact that tubes are big and bulky, but they will also be trackable (depending on the circumstances in your country)

Thank you!

... and hope you enjoyed this silly idea. I also hope that you'll buy one of the posters. Or many, I could really use the money- I wouldn't mind telling people I got rich from selling butt posters on Kickstarter. I will do everything in my power to complete this project as soon as I can, and make sure the posters get printed and shipped in the best and fastest way possible. No buts- just butts.

Risks and challenges

I have a lot of experience in making and shipping posters, and will use a reliable printing company that I trust and have been working with before. The poster is ready for printing and I will make sure the quality of the print and the shipping is the best possible.

The only risk I can imagine, is that people will blush and/or giggle at the sight of these typography butts hanging on the wall.. Butt, isn't that what you want?
