Type of Research: Art/Design Item
Creators: McNeil, Paul and Muir, Hamish

ThreeSix is an experimental optical / geometric type system consisting of six typefaces in eight weights. It explores the possibilities of using systematic principles to generate geometric typeforms which are distinctive at large point sizes but which can also be read at smaller sizes in bodies of extended text.

ThreeSix implements a succession of related optical and structural interventions intended to compensate for some of its own intrinsic limitations. It is the result of our attempts to work within the restrictive rules of geometry to generate simple typographic forms emulating traditional type design principles.
