Clarks is a modular typeface built from a work by Lygia Clark, one of the giants of Brazilian postwar art.
Packed in a font equipped with clever OpenType programming, there are at least 7 different designs for each letter, thus allowing, or rather, proposing, boldly unconventional compositions.
The font is programmed to cycle all these different lettershapes, avoiding repetition. The user can also manually pick up preferred forms in a glyph palette. There are choices to both keep and to defy readability and it’s almost hypnotic, to play with these.
Lygia Clark used to invite viewers to touch her works and so we did with her ‘Planes in Modulated Surface no. 4’, from 1957: we fragment it and turned and inverted and recombined it. Now we return it as audacious typography and invite you to put it to work in your designs. Keep it bold and have fun! Cheers!
