CSS TYPEFACE

 
 

A CSS typeface created to display something that evoked a sense of tangibility–of the physical. I’ve been fascinated with the ways the web emulates the analog through various tropes, trends, and artifacts. I wanted my typeface to have the sensibility of a xeroxed or dot matrix printout. The characters at the top of the page are faded as if the printer is low on ink, but as one moves further down the page the characters become more black and begin overlapping. In this regard, I wanted to create a sense of depth and dimensionality to the page by skewing the characters. So often, web design prioritizes clean, flat design and that is something I wanted to push back on.
