Middle Case, MiXeR Typeface Specimen
In MiXeR, the fusion of uppercase and lowercase letters makes for an alphabet alien yet highly readable.
Designer Zengqi Guo states, "All letter cases should have the same right of speaking in the same volume without losing the characteristic of each individual because differences are allowed to exist."
The intertwined structure that is produced from this concept speaks with a newly harmonious form, as simultaneously its formal qualities become a visual manifesto of a posthuman future.
This elegant type specimen includes a text about MiXeR's origins, as well as the full text of Guo's "MiddleCase Manifesto" (a work that was exhibited at the 2021 RISD Graphic Design Triennial).
