Typophagy Project

Typophagy Project is a decostruction of typefaces using food, and aims to approach the digital font development to the analogic process.

Seven handmade digital fonts compose the project. The goal is to create new meanings for these typefaces through new materials and process, that can result in innovative designs and ideais for other areas.

The discussion suggested in this project is based on technological transformations in the last decade, marked by the consolidation of digital process, through analog digital simulated techniques. This study proposes a merge of the two universes and shows the great potential contained in this mix.
