G T:
Selected generative typography projects between 2011 and 2014 by Kyuha Shim



Contemporary graphic design practices encompass computational thinking and parametric design methods from digital fonts to objects and filters built in software applications. As designers program their own tools for their needs, the computer has become more than a tool: it is a medium that translates designers' logic into computational systems that automate their abstractions.

G T demonstrates possibilities of generative form-giving in typography through algorithmic and real-time formations. Form is defined by ranges of values in parameters, becoming flexible and iterative, as the changing values respond to data.
