Designed with formal design principles in mind, this typeface, named “Space”, explores the effect of positive and negative space on the letterform. The eye searing stripes are at times hard to enter but in most cases the letter’s lines push the eye to the edges of the composition and offer relief.
Although the design focuses primarily on individual letterforms and not so much the interaction of letters to form words, the back of the cards do pair a word starting with the letter on the front of the card to demonstrate the legibility of the typeface. A photograph of the word (repeated to form a pattern) is also included.
Specs: 4x4 in single sided on 110 lb card stock, front and back glued together.
