Georgia 11pt

g11_title

Another experiment from Gabe – zooming way in on the pixelated character set of Georgia at 11 points on screen. So the pixels were scaled up, then rebuilt as circles in a blue/black/gray palette to match the anti-aliasing you get in your browser. Small sizes read a lot like regular on-screen type, but you get some interesting abstractions when the characters are presented at larger sizes.

This is one of many side projects that has come together off of earlier projects and experiments. One element from wherever (in this case Phase 02 | Community), revisited and enhanced, then served back up in a place like the Phase blog for the hell of it. Maybe this comes out at some point on client work, but for now, its innocence is intact.

Piero Di Biase offers up a diverse range of typographic styles through his traditional typeface design, type experiments, and beyond. We’ve zoned in on his Quadro typeface project, which merges two complimentary grid-based faces to create an overlapping, multi-color typographic presentation. This is a smart typographic approach with color at the conceptual core, and the same idea could be applied across the stylistic spectrum of typeface designs.
