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.
