Blank (2006)

The letterforms of the Blank show how the context of a word (or organized group of letters) aids in the understanding, interpretation and perception of letterforms.

Designed in 2006, Blank was the first typeface with which I attempted to challenge how we might understand letterforms specifically devoid of recognisable characteristics. Inspiration to create this typeface came after hearing the theory that we don’t read by looking at each letter, but by recognising the shapes of the words that the letters create.
