Mobius typeface covers basic editorial design needs. After experimenting a wide range of tools, the project started with a basic question in typography. How do you translate/interpret an analog operation - in this case the rotation of a flat tip - into a digital one? The process was infinite and generated an array of shapes from a Sans to a Dispaly Serif. Finally, through a drawings methodology based on the phenomenon of overlap in calligraphy, the project puts forward a Text Serif that attempts to crystallize a tension between a calligraphic gesture and a mechanical construction. An eventually good learning process.
