Touch the work, invited Lygia Clark, one of the giants of Brazilian postwar art. So we did, and more: we fragment it and turned and inverted and recombined it. Now we return her work as bold typography.
Clarks is a modular typeface built from 'Planes in modulated surface no. 4', ︎ a Clark's work from 1957. Packed in a font equipped with clever OpenType programming, there are at least 7 different designs for each letter︎, thus allowing, or rather, proposing, unpredictable compositions.
The font is programmed to cycle all these different lettershapes, avoiding repetition. The user can also manually pick up the preferred glyphs, switching off the programming. There are choices to both keep and to defy readability. Give it a try︎
