Alphabet Topography, Typeface - The Form of Language
The physical form of language is a record of collective memory.
In this monotype typeface, the height of the letterforms is determined by how often a letter is used. This typeface maps the rhythmic ebb and flow of English.
Each letter sits in a 6 x 6 inch square, allowing for any combination of letters to run seamlessly both vertically and horizontally.

The absent digital acquires a physical presence through this complete digital open typeface. Letterforms reminiscent of the screen are realized by black tape.
Caspar Lam and YuJune Park make up Synoptic Office. Both Yale graduates and both prolific makers and educators within the design field, their collective output is that of two people with a keen awareness of graphics’ physicality and unerring ability to realise some occasionally high-concepts in a brilliantly communicative way.
