Coat is a typeface family that explores different ways contrast can be added to letter skeletons. Informed by calligraphic models, different pen angles were applied to a sans-serif letter construction. Both the Roman and Italic are tetrahedron designspaces, each with four masters spanning three axes (weight, contrast and angle). The result is a variable font that offers a wide range of styles.
Céline Odermatt is a Switzerland-based designer. Before Type and Media, she completed her BA in Graphic Design in Lucern and gained several years of working experience as a graphic designer. She also fostered her deep interest in typeface design at various foundries including FontFont, Dinamo and Production Type. Now she splits her time between her independent design practice and working at Lineto.
Type and Media is a master’s course in typeface design at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague (KABK). During the first semester, the students have several ongoing modules with concurrent projects, interspersed with a diverse set of workshops. During the second semester, each student focuses on a single project. This site showcases the final projects of the class of 2019. Enjoy!
