Type specimen DeFace
Poster — numbered silkscreen on 10 copies — designed for the 6th edition of Type An Sich. A type specimen of the typeface ‘DeFace’ by designer Matthew Carter.
This typeface names DeFace, contains a set of inscriptional capitals that are self-vandalizing: each letter has graffiti associated with it that deface neighboring letters. Depending on the text, the graffiti can vandalize both the underlying capitals and other graffiti to make a palimpsest of marks that are individually legible but obscure in combination.
