Ever asked yourself, how it looks like if everyone on earth would use a font representig his own cultural origin. Wouldn‘t it be great to see your own script type shaping one letter of the „world-font“?
Inspired by these questions i designed the „world-font“ typeface. Primarily an assignment for college, this work became a personal milestone. My purpose was to bring in all the alphabets used worldwide. Some of them are religious ones, some are only used by 210 000 people. Every single alphabet is shaping one letter of the latin alphabet. I used the latin letter shape primarily because of the assignment description, secondarily i had to decide for one letter shape. The latin alphabet is the most commonly used, giving the spoken language their shape on the paper.
