I’m simply mesmerized by this typeface, and its making process.
Mondra — an anagram of “random” – is a typeface designed and coded by Martin Borst.
To imitate the appearance of handwriting, each stroke style and downstroke of each character is randomized. Just like actual handwriting, no two letters are identical. The variable downstrokes transport various emotions according to their lengths – from precise and timid to brash and confident.
The typeface »Mondra« won the TDC Prize at the Tokyo Type Directors Club Annual Awards 2012.
