'Soon, I began to sense that the computer screen I saw in front of me was somehow different from the screen I was used to seeing. the strangeness of it was subtle but undeniable.' ('Towards an Uncausal Practice of Visual Communication', PhD Thesis 2023)

In the typeface ‘mingle’, each alphabetic character is cut up in such a way that it mingles, while typing, with the subsequent character within a word, forming a new hybrid letterform. The typeface explores the choreography of typing as a creative rather than reproductive act. Mingle combines qualities of asemic writing with a functional typeface. It keeps the reader in a state of hovering between reading and looking. Click here to try.

Analogue sketches for an asemic typeface.
joan miro once said 'i try to apply colours like words that shape poems, like notes that she music'. how could colour function as written language? where are the limitations of written language?

Agil is a typeface that is responsive to the speed of typing. Inspired by analogue writing, agil shows a development from static letters to agile, dynamic forms with increased typing speed. Agil is not a digitalisation of analogue script, but its curves are based on an analysis of speed in handwriting. The five styles of agil (nix agil, solala agil, ziemlich agil, voll agil, and hyper agil) are combined in a text. This project was the winner of the third prize at the international Designpreis Halle 2017. (Pictures by Felix Rabe) Click here to try.
