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.”

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.
