I designed a thin, geo-sans serif typeface inspired by Ms.Cutlers friendly, open, warm and approachable personality. I wanted the typeface to be delicate and modern yet charming and friendly. Its overall minimalistic, clean and simple personality makes it versatile and gives it the ability to be utilized for many different design purposes. It features short cross strokes, thin width, short x height, tall ascenders, rounded terminals and curved descenders on some letterforms.
The name coordinate has two meanings and pronunciations depending on interpretation. One meaning alludes to Ms.Cutler's current position as an advisor (who coordinates with students) and also her master's degree in geography (geographical coordinates.)
