Grow your own typeface

These intricate visuals have been produced by an interactive application used to grow type mathematically. They were designed by Jana Schiebel and Caroline Hebel as part of a ‘generative typography’ project at the University of Applied Sciences in Wiesbaden, near Frankfurt in Germany.

I haven’t been able to find much information on the process but you can guess that by specifying the number of lines and the acuteness of each angle, varying levels of success can be achieved defining the letterforms
