CryptoKit, a semantic map of blockchain technology

The CryptoKit project provides a visual mapping of blockchain technology and Web3 protocols to make them accessible to a wide audience. It includes an open source typeface of more than 200 pictograms of key blockchain terms. When paired with IBM Plex, these icons can be set up in didactic diagrams on the dedicated website (www.cryptokit.ch).

The CryptoKit project was funded by HES-SO Genève from 2022 to 2023. Team: Anthony Masure (applicant, HEAD – Genève, HES-SO), Guillaume Helleu (associate researcher), Océane Juvin (type design), Élise Gay and Kévin Donnot (graphic and web design).

Océane Juvin
Speaker

Océane Juvin

I am a graphic and type designer focused on visual didactics. After graduating in type design in Paris, I created several pictographic systems and worked for science popularisation. It led me to the Atelier National de Recherche Typographique in Nancy with a physicist associate on the research project 'Depicting the Indiscernable' in which I conceived a typeface with symbols to explain quantum physics.
I am interested in the porosities between language, signs and images and I care about making accessible in a playful way a plurality of existences, ideas, disciplines in their particular complexities.
