about

arka Supersquare is a bright, minimalistic, straightforward, low-contrast mono font. Made to be perfect-looking both on printed designs and on-screen graphics. It's available in gradations from Thin to Extra Black with 10 weights overall.

This font was started as a reflection on works ”Concrete Poetry” and ”Hypertype” by Mark Webster as an artist and Simon Renaud as a type designer. The main goal was to take the geometric and rigid nature of this font and rethink it into a more usable font for graphics, headings, titles, and sometimes even texts.

The development of the project was supervised by graphic and type designer Alessio d’Ellena, the designer who created ABC Laica family and Hantarex family, among others.

Mark Webster, the creator of several art and graphic works, primarily using custom-made software tools along with computational and generative strategies. About Hypertype Project and exhibition in Verse:
”What I'm trying to achieve is a means of one attention-manipulating medium to instill dogma, another attention-manipulating medium to encourage introspection.

To explore this idea, I have chosen a variety of press articles, research papers and presentations on the topics of emotion, facial and affective recognition and I analyzed them using NLP Sentiment from IBM. This raw data is then used as content for unique generative pieces that play with text and typographic form.

Hypertype is above all a textual work which relies on the visual interaction of a variety of typographic signs and letters. There is visual content based on a system and visual context based on a subject — computers automating humans.”
