About Letterform explorations

This unique limited series of generative-art posters was designed by David Březina, Anna Giedryś, and Johannes Neumeier in November 2021. It is an exploration into the various aspects and definitions of digital contemporary writing. What constitutes a character shape? What makes it calligraphic and what makes it glyphic? What is its essence, the fill or the boundary?

Each piece shows a single glyph from one of Rosetta’s typefaces rendered using computer-art techniques and plotted by a robotic calligrapher. Although coming from a precise geometric description, each result is a unique combination of the plotter, marker, and paper – a deviation from the digital mould.
