Type Hacks 1 
Type Design / Workshop



Completed June 2019
during Typography Summer School Los Angeles

Instructors:

These three “weights” (based on Helvetica) were created as the result of a systematic “type hack,” formed by modifying the existing characters with different parameters of 3D rotation, extrusion, and flattening. Some curves retain their orginal structure, while others are eclipsed in newly-created contrast. The result is both familiar and foreign.
