How is a typeface developed? This bachelor’s thesis by Barbara Gundl documents the design process of a typeface that was specially created for this paper. It also presents the most important basic principles of type design in a compact way. The end product of this process is a harmonic serif typeface, which is not only highly legible, but also optimised for small type size and long texts.
It unites calligraphic elements as well as machine components in its character.
It illustrates all stages of the design process from the first sketches to the final version. The main aspects of the typeface are balanced rhythm and good legibility.
