while I venture myself with the opposite extreme of lygia, it's always helpful to look at all weights to find better solutions for some problems. #typedesign#typeatcooper
the hairline process started with a lot of math and I end up deciding for a monoline take - that actually has some contrast for optical compensation.
as a big fan of concrete art and the modular concept, a geometric approach is always very present in my work and, no different, in this typeface - named to reference the radical brazilian artist lygia clark. if you are not familiar with these names, do yourself a favor and check out their incredible work!
it's been little over a month that I graduated from @coopertype and I am thrilled to share that I will TA the next extended bunch. so excited ✨
