Typomaniac

The narrative of the Story begins with the introduction of TYPE, a god-like figure who liberates words and letters alike, no matter what family they rise from. From then on, typekind separated itself from mankind, developing its own society. From birthing and smithing of new letters to development of an entertainment culture to darker aspects such as the mafia, typekind came far, even going into the higher sciences of type cloning and glyph engineering. Then, the typomaniacs attacked- rogue masses that swallow whole type families up. Typekind as it once was was destroyed. Slowly, with the help of man, typekind regains its former glory- it’s only a matter of time.

A graphic narrative using quotes by prominent designers to tell the story of "the Typomaniacs". I created a world and history out of the culture and progression of type.
