2. A Circle

Experimental Typeface Design



2019
London


            In my practice, I believe that physical experience could bring much more surprise that digital editing cannot. The idea of the typeface project is inspired by the physical world where I found many shapes/structures/ forms are recombined into incredible outcomes. According to those inspirations, I explore the typeface shape based on a physical system.
             A CIRCLE established a systems to deconstruct typefaces. By using this system, people could deconstruct the typeface and reconstruct it. It provides aplatform for everyone to create new shapes of typeface.

            在实践中,我一直认为身体感知可以给人带来更多的惊喜和可能性。这个字体项目的想法灵感来源于我们所处的物理世界,在这里各种交错的形状和体量重组成新的视觉图形。根据这些灵感,我开始研究英文字体的结构是否可以通过模块进行重组。

            A CIRCLE 这个项目推出了一 个物理系统,运用此系统可以拆解一个英文字也可以运用拆解的模块去重组一个新的字体。通过这种趣味性的字体实验,拓宽了字体设计和字体结构的可能性,提供了一个 字体研究创造的平台。
