Gabion explores connections between headline and text styles. It is a result of very important learning process. Process of inconnectable dots, searching, learning and changing opinion every day and week. After that all I have a typeface that I would had never thought of drawing. Now I see new fields to explore and have experiences, material and thoughts to build on.
As I learnt, doing quick digitizations and seeing results quickly is a very effective way how to design. The sketch below is one of such digital sketches. I liked the way I could modulate the shape as well as I was interested how designed details disappear in smaller sizes. This gave first direction to what Gabion Text is today.
I had some ideas on how to use Gabion as well I did have some design trying Gabion in different situations. I was curious how others will Gabion find like. How would they use it? What topic will they chose it for? And how will I feel about their designs? I sent it to few friends and I was happy with all of the reponses, though here are my two most favourite.
