Slanted 40: Experimental Type 2.0


This product is sold out

Experimental Type 2.0 showcases experiments in typography and graphic design. The issue presents projects that incorporate the accidental into the design process, works based on mistakes and inaccuracy, fonts that derive from a concept or a system—and ultimately, work that is unconventional and breaks new ground. This issue highlights cutting-edge explorations as well as new approaches to type design, from processing and coding to AI-generated typefaces and variable fonts.

The works selected for this volume are glimpses into spaces that were explored by pushing conventions, limitations, and thoughts to the next level. It is clear though, that the game is never over. New materials, tools, and technologies remain a constant source of inspiration for those that follow.

This volume is an expanded black and white reprint of the first edition of Experimental Type, published by Slanted in 2021.
