Typecook sketch

It’s far from finished, but I thought I’d share some typecook sketches with you. Typecooker is a type generator we use at school. It forces you to come up with new typedesign, because of the often contradictory design rules. Try it yourself, it’s not always easy, but it’s fun!

Get your type drawing on! TypeCooker is a tool for generating type-drawing exercises. The set of randomly given rules or parameters forces you to think outside familiar typographic areas. This assignment is being used in type classes at the Royal Academy of Arts, the Hague. We just got our very first recipe below, I might show some sketches later. You can generate your own recipe andcook sketch your own letter!
