Body Electric Display Typeface

The Body Electric Display typeface was inspired by the constructivists modular typefaces, built with the philosophy that anyone should be able to create a typeface for their own purposes and with specific requirements. Body Electric was created pixel by pixel with a nod to nostalgic digital typefaces of early computers. Despite it being built from strict modular units, the forms are contrastingly humanist and quirky, referencing the bold characters to kitsch typefaces from the 60s and 70s. The typeface calls to mind the human-centric science fiction themes of these earlier decades. As a response to Body Electric, I decided to translate this feeling of digital-nostalgia into a hand stitched quilt.
