- This project is a combination of music and typeface design, with the challenge being to create letter shapes that express the essence of techno music. The uniqueness of this newly designed typeface lies in its shape. The shape of this typeface corresponds with the music. Techno is a modern type of music that breaks traditional rules – no vocals, no sense of structure. The design abides by the same rule: the thicks and thins of the letterform are located on the horizontals instead of the sides.
