PROJECT TITLE:
HAW TYPE DESIGN CLASS »DEADLINE« - I LIKE BIRDS

DESCRIPTION:
Under the instruction of I LIKE BIRDS, a group of students at the HAW Hamburg explored the topic “deadline” using typography. The assignment was to design a font that reflected the meaning of the topic.
There were two different approaches:

1. The development of a temporary font. That means letters that in their look and form only briefly exist and then expire or change. For example: the letters fall, disappear, fade, liquefy, blow away, etc.

2. Fonts with a substantive connection to “time/deadline.” The starting point for this could be in different fields, for example, in the natural sciences, in geography, in nature, etc. The relationship to the topic “time” or “deadline” should be consistently present.

Investigation, research and exploration of the topic stood in the foreground of both approaches. How does time become visible? What kind of effect does it have? The class developed methods and systems with which to generate the letters. The given framework/parameters allowed for coincidences and surprising moments to happen, which the students could integrate into their design process. At the end, the process was documented in the form of a work report, with all of the resulting symbols and letters. A poster presenting the features and particularities of each font was also designed.
