Hello everybody, I am currently working on this years edition of the GRAy magazine for the Rietveld, and the theme this year is artistic research. Regarding the theme, I thought it would be fitting to compile a typeface out of typedesign sketches, which is artistic research in itself. This typeface would be called… Prototype. The idea is to use it for headlines and the cover, and list all contributors in the colophone.

So if you have some darlings you had to kill along the way, some tryouts that didnt make it to the end, I would be very happy to use them. All contributions are most welcome, and I´m sure there are lots of beautiful/ bizarre/ serious/ unbelievable lettershapes in your harddrives. So please have a look, any format is fine, scanned drawings to fontographer files.

Thanks a lot. Kalle
