BY THE WAY, this is a self-made, 3D printed font
Born in 1981, Dusseldorf-based Thomas Wirtz has a thing for technology. By the way – typography and material behavior is his master thesis which he describes a free design experiment that has evolved over time into a modular system consisting of two components. “The self-made font, produced by 3D printing, which is thereby associated with a variety of physical processes. The project deliberately uses traits of digital applications and translates them to analogue media. Not only the acronyms of the models are common abbreviations used in the internet jargon, the experimental kit furthermore allows an analogue simulation of the effect of time dilation (Slow Motion), which is otherwise realised digitally.” Take your time and enjoy his experimental journey into typography and matter.
