As part of the investigation of his practice-based PhD in design, Crystian Cruz investigated more than 150 digital interpretations of typewriter fonts, from typefaces designed for computer programming and Hollywood scripts to those that emulate the raw aesthetic of typeset letters striking on paper. Cruz’s analysis of digital fonts then crossed over with his examination of thousands of typeset documents from the 1970s. Some questions arose: What constitutes a typewriter font? Do we still need them nowadays? What does the particular aesthetic of typewriter typefaces represent out of context? Is there room for experimentation with monospaced letterforms that do not emulate typewriter typefaces or aim for a futuristic look?
