This project required me to explore and create a modular typeface. The typeface was created using 5mm squares and right angle triangles. The typeface was named on the German word for fold, Falte. All the strips on the poster can be cut out and folded to the exact size of the letterforms on the poster. 
 
The typeface was named Falte because my inspiration for the project was Josef Albers, a German-born American, who taught at the Bauhaus, which was a German design school at the forefront of Modernist design.

Program: Illustrator
Paper: Context White 100gsm
