1920 is a two-cuts monocase typeface developed during a week-long workshop. This work was self-initiated when the need of a typeface that would fit the uncommon ratio of a vertical 1080×1920 digital display became necessary.
The result is a typeface with a digital look that still keeps organic details.
1920 Bold in use here.
Graphical system that digitally displays on vertical screens content from Twitter that include '#ecal'.
The concept was to transcribe the idea of viral information as an infection using both analog and digital material.
