Complete alphabet based on DNA structures and the way they are displayed. ‘Preventable disease’ didn’t make the cut for the article, but illustrates the usability and charm of the ‘typeface’.
Typedriven illustration and alphabet for a book review called ‘The Language of DNA Should Rewrite English, Too’, which focuses on the terminology of ‘birth defects’. A piece about language, text and translation, in the context of the biomedical world and mainly focussed on the early stages of life (and even before).
