Course: Typedesign and Grids, Seminarweek

by Marvin Boiko

My font, Penguin, was inspired by round shapes and the Bauhaus style. The individual glyphs consist of circular rings of different sizes and if necessary, they were broken down into quarter sections of rings. A special feature is also the bold stroke width.

In the beginning, to get inspired and test out different options, we put together the first draft of letters from cutting out various shapes and gluing them together.

Afterwards everyone continued to pursue their most exciting and interesting design concept for their glyphs. I decided to design a complete alphabet in capital letters (with various alternative characters), including numbers and umlauts according to the same scheme. The next step was to fine tune the glyphs in the Glyphs font editor.

In my free time, I elaborated a additional light font style. Both font styles are at the end of the article available for download, as well as for non-commercial use.

We documented the processes and the work progress of our entire group, as well as the results of this productive week with our Instagram account - Typoglyphy, which was especially created for this purpose. The work results of the entire group were subsequently presented in the framework of the seminarweek by an internal university exhibition. Our goal for the exhibition was, to create a room filled with glyphs, in which the viewer can move around and look at the different glyphs and fonts which were made in this workshop.
