Abstract plotter drawings created with a single stroke typeface
This project combines type design, creative coding, and machine drawing to create typographic drawings with a pen plotter. I designed a single-stroke variable font for numericals that uses basic geometric shapes like lines, circles, and polygons.
Numerical Compositions was selected for STA 100 in 2019 by the Society of Typographic Arts institute. Here is the project entry: 100.sta-chicago.org/winners/2019/numerical-compositions.

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.
