Starting from the idea of deconstructing typography, reducing it to the simplest shapes. We decided to start painting shapes that could be part of a letter. We each picked five of our favorite shapes to form the base of a new typeface.

After having made a first sketch, we decided to keep things different. Instead of working on our typefaces individually, we would switch every day. Working on someone elses work, being able to change everything.

The final typefaces are shown in a book that consists of 40 individual posters that have been folded into one book.
