Univers Bastard Swiss it up... Assembly.
Conceived within a realm of restriction, Bastard is a modular typeface that challenges the idea of conventional Roman alphabets. The typeface’s structure is formed using three basic elements that are distilled from the Grotesque woodtype housed in The Glasgow School of Art Caseroom. Each shape could only be used once per letter and within this restriction several combinations were generated for each character. The following twenty six characters have been selected to form one possible cohesive set with the full selection of letterforms being available below. Collaboration with Sarah Bethan Jones.
