A new Typeface
With the use of a self-made lens, I created a new typeface. By stretching the existing font Avenir to its limits, I discovered the different forms a letter can take.
Using the fisheye lens technique to reshape an existing typeface challenged me to create a lens. With different vases, bowls and water unexpected shapes, forms and reflections appeared. I stretched the letters so much that chromatic aberration occurred.
I was inspired by fisheye lenses used on album covers. Reshaping of the world fascinates me. Having created two typefaces with two different lens techniques gave room for a lot of graphic possibilities. Exploring possibilities in animation and silkscreen printing.
