Kurve SS font

This brief required me to create a printed or digital publication. I chose the printed form and font creation for Kurve SS. The focus was on two methodologies from differing times and communicate the impact of technology in one of five ways.

I chose to look at how blended technologies work in a single brief workflow. From here I chose to narrate and record the process of creating a typeface in Illustrator. I researched two varying practitioners (C86 and Erik Spiekermann) and then recorded my process of creation, from hand-rendered to digital. I also reflected on how error effects the workflow for both methodologies.

After the project was finished, I later chose to development the drawings and vector shapes I created into a real world Kurve SS font.
