Language of Nature

A generative typeface using the Fibonacci sequence.

www.languageofnature.co.uk was designed in collaboration with software developer Tom Duncalf as a response to a brief asking 55 creatives to respond to the theme of the Golden Ratio for the book "GraphicDesign&: Golden Meaning".

Their response focussed upon the Fibonacci sequence, and explored how their respective specialisations of typography and software development could allow them to interpret the complexity described by the sequence and seen throughout nature.

The software calculates the tens of thousands of possible intersecting lines from any two given points on each character's outline, then allows a chosen Fibonacci number of lines to be randomly selected from this set for each.

The interactive website allows the user to create, share and export their own unique typographic layouts.
