Trial fonts


a16z crypto is a venture capital fund that invests in crypto and web3 startups. They are the catalyst that incites action, the ones who give the future shape and color.

Koto Berlin came to us to help them craft a generative custom font. It’s based on a design system of a singular node that builds an ever changing generative network of elements. For this project we internally developed a custom design tool for generating the patterned versions of the font. This generative approach allowed us to create an infinite number of versions of each glyph, seamlessly animating between each of them.

This generative tool/font can flex and change depending on inputs such as environment, data from the market, etc., showing the ever changing nature of the technological future.
