Typewriter Trio

Sophie Wietlisbach – Typewriter Trio

“Typewriter Trio” is a free interpretation of three typewriter fonts, which keeps the unit system imposed by the mechanics of the machine: “Plakat” and “Advocate” are monospaced while “Thesis” is proportional, based on a finer unit. This project connects to my dissertation about three Swiss manufacturers who specialised in the production of fonts for typewriters between 1941 and 1997: Caractères SA, Setag and Novatype. The digital reinterpretations offer contemporary versions of the fonts adapted for modern use.
