Kübed Typeface

Kübed Overview

TYPE DESIGN, MODULAR TYPE

Brief: Create a typeface from one shape. Challenge your engineering perspective and think not only on a 2D plane but consider how you could use the 3D plane to add another level of depth to the typeface.

Solution: I embraced the 3D element and used a cube, and a 3x7 grid system. Everything had to fit to this. I feel with modular type, it only works if it follows a strict set of rules. Otherwise legibility becomes a big issue as your brain has to reinterpret the shape each time you view a new letter.
