TM001 is a condensed display typeface characterised by a 45 degree angle.

The basic concept behind the letterforms was to take a hand drawn calligraphic script and remove inconsistencies to create a uniform typeface. What started out as fairly expressive forms were simplified by hand and refined through digitisation. The end result is an upright, condensed, gothic style sans serif.


Ductus: In calligraphy a ductus is the direction, number and sequence of the strokes that work together to create a letter.

Paying attention to how the glyphs would be drawn by hand, but creating the outlines digitally gives the letters much of their character.
