HV_100 Project Book

Dóra Balla

This experimental book was inspired by the work of vilmos huszar, a graphic designer of hungarian origin. more specifically, by the cover of the de stijl magazine designed by huszar in 1917, and the unique font he made for the de stijl logo.

This work enhances the design of the original typeface, while it is also a stylistic and graphic innovation. a whole alphabet was created between 2014 and 2016 based on a regular grid system, where the square-shaped monospace fonts are composed of 5 geometric basic units, and the whole typeface also forms a regular square. The sample sheets of font-experiments became distinctive images, compact shapes by the use of patterns and grids that do not modify the basic shape of the fonts. It is, in every case, a peculiar and universal pattern system that reshape the original design. during the course of the design process hundreds of versions were created, out of which 100 were chosen to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of the original set. 36 font designs selected from the 100 represent the versatility and diversity of this alphabet.
