About

"Eureka" is a research on the typeface of the same name. Work given in a course at HEAD, I researched the features and specifications of this font. I then worked on a layout featuring the universal aspect of the latter.

The brochure was printed on a RISO printer. Other students who have studied other handwriting fonts and staff worked on a book for everyone.
-
The original drawings for Eureka date from 1995 when it was designed for the bilingual text of Transparency. The typeface works especially well for languages with accented characters.
-
Many contemporary western typefaces have large x-heights which leave little room to accommodate accents, the result is that they are small and cramped.
-
However, in many languages the accents are an integral part of the alphabet and shouldn’t be reduced in size and importance. In order to maintain a proper rhythm in the text, Bilak adjusted the proportions
of the typeface.
