Designer, Eike Dingler was inspired by the structure and design of medieval style initials. He was interested in the complexity of the hierarchy and use of negative space.
Dingler created a typeface by importing code into a computer program and allowing the design process to be changed completely. Instead of hand drawing or using illustrator, Eike opted for a much more complex and challenging method.
Dingler's program allowed for the implementation of these patterns in each of his characters making for these beautiful and very illustrative letterforms, even though they were computer made.
