Classon Commute (2021)

Experimental Typography Design
What is it to read and to write? Inspired by Paul Elliman’s work, I began thinking about rearranging groups of ordinary things in a certain way in order to create an interesting system for the objects to react to one another. 

I took screenshots of my most frequently visited locations on the map as my initial collections. After a few rounds of iterations, I decided to showcase multiple possibilities for each letter and challenging the type legibility. The 3-minute video with the “dancing” strokes showcases the Classon Commute alphabets with endless opportunities derived from one’s commuter experience.
