Project: MONNNO

By: Harrison Kratzer

Course: GD490

"MONNNO is a typographic experiment in form and space, seeking to render an efficient and beautiful 2D typeface in a physical 3D environment with certain restraints such as physics, dimension, and shape. 

The forms of each 2D letter are given by a singular "perfect" viewpoint of the 3D sculpture, as if the form itself is a snapshot of time amongst countless perspectives."
