About Actor

A diploma thesis project from the Aachen University of Applied Sciences at Karl-Friedrich (Kai) Oetzbach. The design was initiated in a course on type design, and the idea was to learn about writing as an information carrier by creating a typeface. It was created entirely digitally, so the path to the current version is very rocky and winding.

Actor has a strong x-height, which is why it always requires a fairly high line spacing. The digits of Actor are created as old style figures. The forms of 6 and 9 are more dynamic and more tense than usual. The 8 has significantly shifted interiors and the 7 is slightly curved to the left.
