Do Machines speak our Language?
Using a Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) trained on a dataset of 512 fonts (or images thereof), 100 images of fonts were generated. From these 100, 10 were then selected to represent the full range of results. Based on these 10 images, functional fonts were then created in Glyphs. The reference text is a combination of the beginnings of chapters three and four - the letter and the word - from Jost Hochuli's book Detail in Typography, in which he outlines various aspects of typography, including the relationship between letterforms and legibility. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Phillip K. Dick as well as Darwin Among the Machines by Samuel Butler served as inspiration for this work.
Machines, of course, do not speak our language, but are trained to decipher it.
But do the machines even understand what they decipher?

Theoretical diploma exploring GAN font creation and Optical Character Recognition / Machine Reading Comprehension technologies.
Hermann Typeface is inspired by and loosely based on Hermann Zapf’s Ideas which he outlines in »Über Alphabete. Gedanken und Anregungen beim Schriftentwurf«. Especially the part where he describes traveling to italy and searching for inspiration in antique roman gravestone typefaces.
I then went onto the old cemeteary in Darmstadt, where Hermann Zapf himself is buried and looked for inspiration on Tombstones on that graveyard.
The specimen itself revolves around the topic of death and gravestones.

Investigation about the capabilities of the extended color spectrum in 7-color printing through various experiments. What is this printing process capable of?
The publication examines the differences and possibilities of 4-color (CMYK) versus 7-color (CMYKVOG) offset printing. The images are printed on two sides, with 4 colors on one side and 7 colors on the opposing side, and loosely gathered in a newspaper style.
