This project was an exploration of a typeface, with the deliverable of thirteen (13) cards containing information about the typeface, including it’s designer, it’s use, and in a vernacular of our choosing.
I selected rotis sans by Otl Aicher, and the vernacular of microbiology. I was inspired by the idea of how scientist look through a microscope to dissect and understand the small component that make up the whole. That seemed like the perfect metaphor for the project and so I created the companion of a microscope, the slide to tell the story.
