Type Design: A methodical and pragmatic approach to the design of a typeface, this project’s foundation is rooted in the desire to create a universally legible typeface appropriate for every situation. Using six typefaces largely considered to be universally legible, the result of the this
project, in theory, would result in a typeface that could be used in any
situation and still be legible and applicable.
Heavily based in research through design and an analytical approach
to dissection of typography, Amalgam finds the mathematical median of the typefaces, presented without optical corrections.
The typefaces used in this project are Helvetica, Akzidenz Grotesk,
Unica, Vectora, Univers & Futura.
