Elementype is a font for the Elementype book. The main idea was to work as a brand.
I ran several type design tests to find the right cover design path. I realized that I needed to remove information for it to work as a brand and decided to remove almost all the counter-forms of the letters. I explored, giving the letters a monospaced look so that they would occupy the same space on the grid vertically and decided to make their personality friendly as the language of the book.
