An experimental typeface
Pleat has 3 weights and includes 106 characters. Letters and special characters were formed through the folding of a square piece of paper. The origami “sketches” were then digitalized using Glyphs, a font editor. At the time, it was the most equipped origami typeface. Pleat Complicated, Pleat Simple, and Pleat Solid Black are the final products of the combination of characters with a modern twist.
This project was created at the University of Applied Sciences Mainz under the supervision of Prof. Johannes Bergerhausen.
