Alphabet Topography by Synoptic Office
Topography and typography are two words that sound similar and the google search in my browser almost always tries to second guess or correct me whenever I’m typing in “topography” thinking I meant to type in “typography”.
I recently typed in a search for “typography topography” and to my delight, I happened upon the amazing work entitled Alphabet Topography by Synoptic Office via This Is Colossal (a site I could spend hours getting lost in).
It’s a lovely intersection of typography and topography and the sort of piece I’d love to run my fingers across. According to the creators of this work, “the height of the letterforms is determined by how often a letter is used. This typeface maps the rhythmic ebb and flow of English.”
