The intention of Defalign is to withstand the threat of todays self inflicting conventions and resist the orderly fashion of the driven conscience. To explore timeless themes that affect the existential alignment within an environment by offering a stylised impression in design for type.
Space is unified, unidentified and roaming. Our language environment is similar to our physical nature; precious and vulnerable. How we interpret our immediate environment relies on our use of structure. Grid bases to designers shares common knowledge, yet further more — boundaries of the letterform can refer to, and coincide with — the universal philosophy behind the idea.
Structure, dimension, posture and tone.
Communication depends on interpretation, connotative support from typographical modules can bring to the apparent a direct reference to the reliant. Applied to surface, typographical aid guides the dependent visitor. Scan judges display, the first impression is typographic.
