Entry Description

The beauty of Scientific diagrams is a personal project that aims to explore scientific diagrams and take form integration to more complex territories. The research intensive project looks at experimenting with typography, lettering and illustration, paying tribute to the history of science. The letters are carefully designed such that they should be fully functional if they existed as models in the real world. Letters P, Q and X are missing as I was unable to find appropriate diagrams that looked like the respective letters and could be distorted without rendering the diagram dysfuntional.
