Translating into Typefaces...

With enormous thanks to my colleague, the talented Wayne Thompson at Australian Type Foundry, I have finally managed to finish the custom typeface - Translation Hand, conceived as part of my PhD research around art and design.

It's nothing too clever typographically speaking; just based my own handwriting, but intended as a means of conveying the significance of graphical aspects of textual presentation.

You can find Wayne's typographic work here...
