TYPEFA DESIGN. Kaleidoscope typeface started with geometrical pieces of paper unified by sewing pins and attached to a black board. These shapes were later vectorized. The name was inpired by the three dimensional effect of the unified pieces.
PROCESS. Several alterations of Kaleidoskope were created as part of the typeface investigation.
ALPHABET. The same shapes were used for the development of all the letters and symbols of the alphabet.
POSTER. The idea of three dimensionality was also tested and better achieved with the letters upon a dark background. Adding more depth delivered a pop-out visual effect on a flat platform.
MOBILE CASE DESIGN. Letters are read on big as well as small surfaces. The geometrical letters also create the illusion of a pattern.
TYPEFACE APPLICATION. Letters were also used in products such decorative pillows.
Kaleidoscope is a contemporary font based on Adrian Frutiger's "Univers". This project involves the development of a font and the experimentation of new techniques and materials other than digital tools.
The letters were originally created with paper and foam board to get the sense of tridimensionality.
