Our contribution to the Fitchburg Alphabet

Earlier this year, we were asked by visual artist Anna Schuleit Haber to take part in her Fitchburg Alphabet project. For 26 days, one letter designed by a different designer is being shown on the front page of Fitchburg’s daily newspaper each day.

This is our contribution and a short description:


Printed letters, such as in this newspaper will become luxury, and will be largely replaced by type on digital media. Our letter is an enlarged E of our upcoming JAF Bernini Serif, as it is rendered on a screen at 9 pixel size. The poetic colors are an artifact of an algorithm that makes use of the red, green and blue sub-pixels. A direct cue taken from the newspaper was the five-column grid, linking the smallest possible module and the largest one used in typography.
