NON

NON is a series of limited edition type systems that utilise the basic latin and numerical character sets to create abstract forms, rhythms and fields from otherwise ordinary text. When used effectively NON establishes a kind of new universal language.

NON fonts do not conform to traditional typographic rigors. While NON fonts are made using regular alphabets, they rarely form regular legible language patterns. Words, sentences and paragraphs present irregular typographic fields, creating outcomes that feel like type, but are altogether unique.

Experimentation is at the heart of the NON series. NON does not seek conventionally useful outcomes, instead NON is about the rhythms and textures of visual communication.

NON Section

Section is a type system constructed using an approximation of letterforms, each made with vertical, horizontal or diagonal dissections of triangles, circles and squares of a standard size. These sections of base shapes repeat and contrast to form a rhythm of positive and negative form. Keylines are at the heart of Section’s structure. The font family consists of varying keyline weights, in both outline and solid forms. When typeset, letterforms are both unified and separated by a repetition of equal keylines, blurring the difference between one letter and the next, but also providing a beautiful and compelling typographic minimalism.

Usage Notes

Section will typeset much like any other typeface. The font is essentially mono-spaced, so type will set in a predictable rhythm. The overall glyph height is equal to the glyph width, making each character set within equal square units. As a result solid-set text can form patterns with equal vertical and horizontal spacing.

Section has not been designed for typesetting legible sentences or paragraphs. The character set is made up of a simplified glyph set consisting only of unicase characters, numerals and punctuation marks essential for spelling common words.
