frank specimen folder

A modular typeface inspired by Erik Spiekermann's tell-it-like-it-is attitude and approach to typography; having a clear voice and being frank.

The Form

It started out with the formation of a “g” and how it looked remarkably like Spiekermann’s face. Geometric shapes are dissections of his personality: his sharp wit represented by triangles that resemble beaks; circular curves that mirror his glasses and his nature of inquisitiveness; and lined rectangles for his dry humour and general straight-forwardness.
