The Typographic Matchmaking in the City project is a design research project investigating new approaches for bilingual lettering and poetic narrative for public space. The project have proven to be highly inspirational for the participating designers; it brought together designers from different cultural backgrounds to intensely collaborate, over a period of 2 years, on creating coherent products with groundbreaking results.


Our team composed from Max Kisman and myself, and with the help of Hisham Youssef (architect) created a monospaced typeface Storyline that can be used as a unit block in modular construction or a unit cell for multiple screen systems. The Storyline font Arabic, The Khatt Foundation, Amsterdam.
