Looking outwards

I found this project that involved generating a parametric typeface. I’m not sure if it exactly qualifies as simulation, so I’ll post a better example when I find one. I thought it was really interesting though and since we talked briefly about parametric design (quite literally involving knobs affecting form variables).

I really like the touches of animation that make the type appear alive and organic, and the interaction using computer vision in the projection installation version. Great and simple idea.

  1. This is a really cool idea. I remember in Christian Schwartz’s lecture about type design he was talking about the program he uses that allows you to automatically generate any weight of a typeface you’re working on as long as you define the extremes (thin and extra bold.) This wouldn’t be too hard to make based on that principle, but I really like the “springiness” effects they added here to add to the interaction of the piece.
