info     I created this typeface/ letter during a one-week work-shop which was part of the International Seminar Week at our university. We dealt with different type and sign systems and created our own variable font.

We developed a feeling for what the font should look like by creating manual sketches. We focused on capital letters and developed a system that is suitable for all letters. My focus was on bringing opposites together. Wide and fine elements as well as pointed with round elements.

variable font       In order to create a variable font, you need two different masters that differ significantly from each other. By interpolating, all intermediate steps between the two masters are calculated.
