Check out the links
Nova | LuxTypo – released thru LA Mfg.
Nova is the result of an experiment in what is truly necessary for a character to be legible. Each character was designed around the minimal notion, “how much does one need to be able to read.” Some characters achieve this more easily than others; however, when set in context of a word, the eye can compensate. Rather than selecting an existing typeface and “editing,” Nova was designed from zero. The typeface was born this way, not mutated to this point – you can’t miss what you never had.

Autoknit | LuxTypo – released thru LA Mfg.
Structure can be liberating. Autoknit finds an alternative way to be expressive within the limitations of the grid. Designed as a system, the three fonts play off one another to create dynamic situations. With usage at smaller sizes, Autokint creates varying degrees of texture. While at larger sizes, design considerations become apparent as to how certain characters are formed.
