Font Clock

February 3, 2010

An adapted version of the classic calendar clock, featuring a rotating sequence of contemporary typefaces.

The font clock is a 21st century interpretation of the calendar clock. Featuring twelve different typefaces, the clock presents a mix of graphic language with every flip of the clock’s mechanism.

“The essence of the idea is the twelve fonts, all chosen for their design strength and individuality and all of which are twentieth century apart from one, an English 18th Century script, in theory , at given points within the annual time cycle, all the fonts will run together for 5 minutes.” Designer, Sebastian Wrong.

Produced by Established & Sons, designed by Sebastian Wrong. Available through Living Edge.
