We were delighted to be asked by the outstanding Marcus Swan of Image Now to submit a piece for Typeset, an exhibition showcasing type and typographic design.

Our submission was based on the research we’ve been doing on grave stone typography around Ireland, we’ve been fascinated by the myriad forms and styles that crop up in unexpected places and the way in which they have been degraded by the elements. In this case we focused on the varying details in the letterforms that recede and appear as the sun’s light changes throughout the day, effectively generating multiple styles of the same typeface as time goes on.
