Omnigraf Font Project
In conjunction with the 2018 anniversary of Den midlertidige Tegneskole i Oslo there will be an exhibition of the Omnigraf Font Project which is a jubilee project celebrating letterforms in their various manifestations; written, calligraphed, drawn and constructed.
The design of letterforms had a fixed place in the curriculum of “Tegneskolen” and its successors. Rather than focusing on a specific style or period of letter production, the Omnigraf Font Project reflects on the idea of drawing as exemplified by the art of lettering.
We cordially invite you to this exhibition, where you will have the opportunity to play, interact with and print out the font and contribute to the exhibition!

This project was conducted by Maziar Raein, Head of KHiO Letter Archive and lecturer to the MA Design Programme, Ane Thon Knutsen, Research Fellow at KHiO Design and Ellmer Stefan, independent Type Designer and lecturer at KHiO Design.
