This project is an exploration of grid-based typography and the ways in which it can mutate and animate. An alphabet in upper and lowercase, numbers, and punctuation was constructed using a grid that is eleven units tall and five units wide. It includes a cursor for editing as well as a feature for controlling the weight by moving the mouse across the screen.
Static: typing tool with no animation Width: width of each letter is randomly generated and animated X-height: x-height of entire input is randomly generated and animated Random: x-height and width of each letter is randomly generated and animated All: width, height, weight, x-height, curve, tracking, and grid gap spacing are randomly generated and animated
This project was completed by Josh LaCalamito for Thesis 2 at Parsons School of Design with Professor Geoff Han.
