About
G2 Kosmos is a modernistic monoline typeface. It’s simple shapes follow a geometric grid, but don't hesitate to break free to form better flowing and smoother letters. The grid is the same one artist and designer Wolfgang Schmidt used for his Lebenszeichen («signs of life»). This system of signs was developed to “measure the entire cosmos of his emotions and experiences”. The typeface’s first incarnation was drawn as part of the 2019 diploma project by → Maxim Weirich surrounding the Lebenszeichen. More Information on them can be found → here. For the wider release, G2 Kosmos has been revamped and redrawn from the original design for better usability. We have also added an extended cut. As a throwback to the original design we have included alternative characters that still follow the grid in a more rigid manner.
Lebenszeichen grid showing “mouth (closed, smiling)” and G2 Kosmos “a” with visual adaption.
Excerpt from the exhibition reader, showing an interview about the history of emotions.
