TWO LINES ALIGN: GRIDMEN


ROLE:
PUBLICATION DESIGN, TYPE DESIGN, RESEARCH



 




Two Lines Align is a speculative project that compares the work of a historical graphic designer—Wim Crouwel—with a contemporary one—Mark Gowing. With a timeline of just two weeks to research and produce the final project, I chose to design a typeface that incorporated the similarities I observed in both designers’ uses and designs of type. Gridmen was created in five styles. The first part of this publication explains my research, and the last part includes the type specimen.
