Numerical Compositions

zine

This project experiments with type design, creative coding and drawing with machine. Aspired to create typographic drawings with my pen plotter, I designed a single stroke variable font for numerical featuring basic geometry of lines, circles and polygons.
Selected for STA 100 in 2019 by the Society of Typographic Arts institute. Winning entry: 100.sta-chicago.org/winners/2019/numerical-compositions.
A demo video of the type generator showing the different type variants.
A series of pen plotter drawings are created with the generative font to explore typographic compositions, abstract form, and color dynamics. Made with acrylic paint markers on black paper, the drawings are available in store at store.yuinchien.com.
