Void Sans Serif

Space is defined as a continuous area or expanse that is free, available, or unoccupied through which all things exist and move. Historically, blank spaces were seen as unintentional, or as a void needing to be filled. Today, blank space is thought of differently: a positive design pause, aesthetic choices, and intentional spaces. I aim to explore this tension.

My goal is to show the importance of the void by instilling patience in the user. By creating a digital typeface that utilizes negative space, I will rely heavily on the usage of white spaces to form the letters. To understand the message, the user must utilize patience and admiration in the blank. However, if patience is not exercised, the viewer will still be able to appreciate the form of the letterforms. Through this typeface, I will give negative space, blank space, white space, and the void, power.
