Solution for Artist’s Type Foundry comprised a typeface in three parts, commissioned by Artist’s Type Foundry. Each character was cast, by hand, in concrete, as a manual reworking of the ubiquitous Arial font. These concrete characters were then formed into a functional digital typeface – Typeface Solution. Finally, a publication – in the form of a type specimen – was produced using the typeface.
Typeface Solution and a digital version of the publication, How To Make A Typeface, are available to download and use, free of charge, from www.artiststypefoundry.eu
