Design a geometry-based typeface from a source of twelve characters originally developed in the 1930s.
The original characters were deconstructed to gain an understanding of the underlying grid upon which they were likely designed. Additionally, a sense of the geometry of the shapes that had been combined to construct the letterforms was critical. A general set of rules was then developed to guide the process of creating the new characters.
The typeface forms exist in digital/vector format, however, the original goal of the project - to cut wood type for letterpress printing - will be taking place at Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum in Two Rivers, WI.
