type design


 

 

 

this type design project started in the typography class at the hgk basel. the assignment was to design a font for the city of basel.

completely new to basel, i had a look at the architecture in the city and noticed that there is a lot of renaissance and gothic architecture. therefore, i decided to mix those two styles in my typeface.

afterwards, i did an extensive exploration of possible transformations from the basic typeface. i am still working occasionally on this font – it will be finished one fine day...
