Project 2 & 3: Typeface as a Medium

“But in any context, large or small, designing the medium is managing the potentials and relationships between objects, the activity or disposition immanent in their organization.” – Keller Eastering


Project 2

Create a variable font, considering the axes of variation as a medium. With this format, you are not only designing the visual instances of letterforms — you are designing the relationship with the typographer (or anyone who uses the font.) What power and possibilities are you granting with your variable font? If you can choose any kind of axes for variation, what is the significance of that choice?

Project 3

Create a typographic website for your typeface, as a specimen that responds to specific conditions enabled by the web.
