DECOMPRESSION

Brief: Create a typeface. 


I developed this typeface inspired by the explorative directions and sounds of Nicolas Jaar.  Jaar has an unconventional take to electronic music production, which is confident but understated. 

His experimental sounds have previously been described as being pneumatic [containing or operated by air or gas under pressure] which inspired the name of this typeface.

Sometimes it’s really nice to look at your older work and get inspired by it – I created the basis for this typeface quite a few months ago and never developed them completely. Now fluid and adaptable, I see their value in form as shapes rather than letters.
