Working with typography inspired by animals

Zebra
A typeface created as a result of animal field studies
Working with typography inspired by animals. In this particular case, the inspiration came from zebras, their contrasting appearance and way of camouflaging when gathering. Furthermore, key elements to making the typeface were various contrasts like delicate vs. robust, power vs. weakness and dark vs. light – contrasts symbolizing the zebra and its characteristic appearance. With foundation herein, the typeface is made to function for display, and sets out as a way of captioning the viewer from a distance.
 
The project is made in collaboration with Bernt Henrik Kommedal and Rikke Gjerulff.
