Font Gear by Kaiho Sho

Letters are components of a larger (alphabetic) system that work in tandem to produce a force (language). So why not create a typeface based on gears – those rotating machines that transmit motion? That was the idea behind Font Gear, a typeface created by Kaiho Sho for his senior thesis exhibition at Tamabi.

Sure it’s not the first gear typeface, but it’s certainly the prettiest in my book!

I came across Kaiho Sho while exploring the body of work produced for the 2011 senior thesis exhibition of students from Tama Art University(Tamabi).

  1. I love new typefaces! It’s great to see a Japanese designer creating English typefaces. The question now: where and when is it available?
