Slanted #40—Experimental Type deals with experimental design strategies in typography and graphic design. This issue presents projects incorporating the accident into the design process, works based on mistakes and inaccuracy, fonts that derive from a concept or a system—in the end work that experiments or goes unconventional ways in design. This issue showcases cutting edge approaches as well as new experimental procedures, from processing to ai-generated typefaces or variable fonts.
