For my senior thesis at the University of Michigan, I chose to focus on process rather than outcome, and to explore, experiment, and play my way to a final project. Over the course of seven months, I completed a number of self-contained projects and countless fragments along the way.
To bring all this work together, I designed a suite of typefaces that drew both conceptually and aesthetically from my explorations. This project of processes is Most Obscure: an exploration of an anxiety over the permanence and rigidity inherent in the written word, culminating in three typefaces that embrace the uncertainty and fuzziness with which we communicate.
