Randomness occupies the space between control—poetic, serendipitous, respected, undiscovered. Random Typeface explores how degrees of randomness act on systematic typeface design. I employed three experimental techniques—nature, implements, and hands—to generate three corresponding typefaces. The resulting visual language and documentation reveal the connection and relationship between human and media. Moreover, the process outweighs the product, as each typeface reveals stories unique to its evolution and demonstrates varying degrees of control. The randomness found in these techniques and in the type design reflects the poetry describing the design in our own selves.
