Typeface 2017

A bluntly geometric display face that grew out of work on the Diskotopia record label branding.

The first outlines were drawn as custom type treatment on promotional materials for the Tokyo launch event over a decade ago. Since then it has been expanded and refined to form the core visual identity for the label.

Over the years, the project gradually progressed as my skills in designing and building typefaces developed, and ultimately helped lay the foundation for a new outlet for that type design, Neither Bureau. A such, this project has become reasonably personal to me as it has traced my trajectory from merely designing with type to designing type directly.
