Typeface Design

“Access,” a display typeface that seamlessly blends the essence of architecture, construction and structural design with its main element being the distinctive trapezoid shape. Inspired by the clean lines and geometric precision found in buildings and urban landscapes, this element pays homage to the interconnected building blocks that form the basis of architectural wonders. It embodies the synergy between form and function.

“Access” exudes a sense of strength and stability, mirroring the interlocking elements of an architectural diagram, forming a continuous line or breaking apart into distinct components. The name reflects the essence of accessibility and connectivity. The bold, sharp edges of the letters pay homage to the steel beams that underpin towering structures, while the subtle curves reflect the fluidity of construction materials taking shape.
