Typography and the Body is a comparison between Helvetica and the human form.


The project looks at how the three dimensional curves of the body bend and interact with the opposing geometric typeface, taking inspiration from the work of Robert Brownjohn. Helvetica is arguably the most widely used typeface today. With this in mind, the work comments on the development of letterforms; originating from body parts and gestures (among other things) to more widely visualise the disassociation between the body and modern technological world.
