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.
