“A first cut into the sheet… There’s no turning back now. It’s like choreography. I draw a curve, turn the sheet and continue in the opposite direction. Wow! An interplay of characters and counters appears as if I was creating the yin and yang sign! Well, let me continue back to my first cut. Hmm on reflection, this ‘a’ looks like a large fellow leaning forward and looking at his belly…” "Karak" is a typeface composed of five styles, which are the result of original material experimentation. It is a journey that recalls the innocence and creative impulse of our youthful days. hello@benoitbrun.com www.benoitbrun.com

AKIRA is a lettering inspired by the japanese tuning. It uses shapes inspired by curves from tuned cars, ornaments, stickers and inspires motion. It’s a versatile lettering, with multiple possible variations for the same letter. The result of this research is a newspaper that uses grids taken from japanese dailies and mangas. These construction systems gave me the possibility to show off its modularity and to create strong black and white contrasts. This lettering aims to symbolize the movement or to be used as one alone, like a visual language.
