Type on Mars

Typeface / 2018

This is a 3D font design based on the research of Get Rid of Temporality. Attracted by NASA's Mars photos while I was browsing Instagram, I found that such beautiful alien geologic formations was so charming.

The shape of this font was inspired by a field of dunes located in the floor of the Lyot Crater on Mars. The lines in the field were blocked by curves, and the sharp lines were perfectly combined with the soft curves, which seemed to shimmer under the sun. In the nature, the seemingly conflicting structure creates flawless beauty. I modeled this soft and tough form, creating a set of her most beautiful language through the presentation of twists and partial missing.
