Walking: A Research Method in Art and Design, 2020

exhibition typography

Referencing blueprints for the 1937 building of the Royal Academy of Art, the identity of the exhibition is centred on a modular stencil typeface which is based on the Graphik typeface by Christian Schwartz, and is inspired by early 20th century geometric sans-serif typefaces. The typeface has five different weights and each of them varies in the width of its stencil bridges, creating a vast range in variation. Setting text in this typeface is randomised by a custom script which creates the unique visual character of the body text.
