The Form of Language

Alphabet_1

Wrote Bryony Quinn in a February 15, 2012 It's Nice That post: Caspar Lam and YuJune Park make up Synoptic Office. Both Yale graduates and prolific makers and educators within the design field, their collective output is that of two people with a keen awareness of graphics' physicality and ability to realize high concepts in a brilliantly communicative way, as with "Alphabet Topography" [above and below].

The physical form of language is a record of collective memory.

Alphabet_3

In this monotype typeface, the height of the letterforms is determined by how often a letter is used. This typeface maps the rhythmic ebb and flow of English.

Alphabet_4

Each letter sits in a 6 x 6 inch square, allowing for any combination of letters to run seamlessly both vertically and horizontally.
