I created this tool during the development of Alitalia's website site redesign, we suggested using bespoke typography (based on their corporate typeface) as "illustrations" to communicate various offerings, services, events, etc.
This type tool prototype/POC made it easier to develop these custom type moments. Common devices are hairlines within the type, dotted contours, etc. This example served as a proof of concept, which could export .PDF files for further refinement in Illustrator. A full developed implementation would be ideally semi-autonomous by implementing a more sophisticated 2D straight skeleton & polygon offsetting algorithm.
Created while at frog Design Munich.
