Grow your own typeface
These intricate visuals have been produced by an interactive application used to grow type mathematically. They were produced by Jana Schiebel and Caroline Hebel as part of a ‘generative typography’ project at the University of Applied Sciences in Wiesbaden, near Frankfurt in Germany.
I haven’t been able to find much information on the process but you can see that by specifying the number of lines and the acuteness of each angle, varying of degrees success can be achieved in defining the structure of the letterforms.
