An experimental typeface exploring the possibilities in the construction of shape and form through the use of line.
SeriesThis is an on-going series of compositions using repeating geometric forms that complement and highlight the typeface.
ConceptThe idea for Solar came from the pages of an old sketchbook.
The construction of each letter is based on pure geometric forms, rather than an existing typeface. A focal point from which the letter will be formed is chosen, and lines are drawn from that single point and cut at the borders of the letter's "skeleton".
In fact, many letters were hand-drawn to quickly find the best focal and proportions that complemented that letter best.
Each and every line and dot was drawn by hand, one at a time, in FontLab – a fairly painstaking process.
