Type Design in the Mountains

26 October 2016


In September we participated in TypeClinic, the international type design workshop, run by Tomato Kosir in Triglav national park, Trenta, Slovenia. Before coming to the workshop you had to have formulated what kind of typeface you wanted to design.

Our intent was to create a quirky characterful contemporary grotesque that we could use in the studio. The workshop was intense but in a good way, starting at the very beginning with sketching letterforms, getting the proportions, stem widths and shapes right before transitioning to the computer.

Over the course of the work, after continual refinement, we managed to have the lowercase and half of the uppercase alphabet. Post TypeClinic we are continuing to finish the rest of the glyphs so will have the first weight of Noa to use – watch this space!
