Handmade Type Experiment

Article by Awwwards Team in Design & Illustration - May 16

The Taiwanese artist Tien-Min Liao has carried out an experiment that surprises us with a typeface that she says "explores the relationship between capital and lowercase letters, and the transformation between them." The exercise consists in gesturing with hands, each of them painted with ink base shapes, so that the profiles draw each of the letters. A letter in uppercase is processed in the same way as a lowercase letter, making just a few gestures of the hands and changing some perspectives. In the development and implementation videos you can see how it's done. Tien-Min Liao's complete experiment: Handmade Type
