Tool Box - Gonggoo Font / typeface book

Tool Box - Gonggoo Font
Tool Box - Gonggoo Font

The basic tool for communication is language. Communication that takes place between people can only be imperfect. I have personally created this handwriting font in which the ‘tools’, the collective term used to refer to those tools that create and repair, serves as a medium for representing my hope for improving such imperfect communications between people. I wished to make the visualization so that people can realize the functions of the tools in an interesting and simple way. Therefore, I have produced the art toys with materials that were being discarded by highlighting the features for creating and repairing an object.
