A Stroke Font Family

The Stroke Font Family is a project which looks at how the most basic mark, the stroke, can be varied depending on which implement is being used. It is an ongoing exploration of how writing and drawing tools influence the appearances of strokes and thereby the shapes we recognize as characters.

Another aspect of the design process is to investigate how to make a font family diverse and coherent at the same time. To solve this, the design is based on the same skeleton but some factors vary such as the tool, the number of tools and the direction of the stroke.
