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’.

BIRTH DEFECT

Typographic Illustration


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).
    The design is based on how chromosomes are structured and displayed. Of course it’s not perfectly readable, which suits the main problem stated in the text; the difference in usage of words, with possible dangerous and serious consequences.
