Jester is an experimental font family made of 22 variations, each named after a major arcana of the divinatory tarot. Its origin takes root in a fiction, depicting a futuristic society where the paradigms of typeface creation and reading put into perspective those of our time.
Marrying historical letterforms with the organic unpredictability of “reaction-diffusion” algorithms, Ready does more than flirting with abstraction: it tips over into becoming pure shapes, only sprinkled with a few hints of our long-established and codified writing system.
Michaux was not created so much as it was found. Each glyph of this typeface was selected from thousands of computer-generated three-stroke signs. This family not only offers a radical process, it also offers a visual system that is as wild as it is coherent, reducing any idea of regularity to the bare essentials.
