Symbiosis: A font grown from E. coli 5 Nov 2009

Dezeen reports that Dutch designer Jelte van Abbema won the €10,000 Rado Prize at the Dutch Design Awards last week for a body of work including Symbiosis - a font printed in bacteria.

Van Abbema printed this font on paper (see above) and billboards, creating "simple typographic forms that changed colour and form as the bacteria multiplied and then died".
