PAPER AND LOVE TYPEFACE

Taking it outside, then inside. Don’t ask what that means.
Originally created with a flat typeface in mind, paper & love is based on an octagonal grid and origami folds. The digital version represents this concept of origami by emphasizing transparency and by focusing on the shapes of the letter. The majority of the two-dimensional letters can be obtained by simply folding thin strips of paper and by following the octagonal grid. By taking what I had initially envisioned for the digital version, I created a new set of letters in 3D using paper, an x-acto knife and, of course, love (corny but true)!
