Paper & Love Typeface

From the creation of Chris Berthe who is a designer with an international background. Born in Montreal and raised much of his life in Paris, most of his work revolves around combining different skill sets; from illustration, graphic design and craft to digital concepts including interactive installations and web development.

He enjoy the thought process that goes into building a product and he find it an essential part of a designer’s experience. Chris find his style to be quite arbitrary compared to others; most of what he create consists of learning new techniques for each project.

The project

Originally created with a flat typeface in mind, paper & love is based on an octagonal grid and origami folds. The digital version represents this concept of origami by emphasizing transparency and by focusing on the shapes of the letter. The majority of the two-dimensional letters can be obtained by simply folding thin strips of paper and by following the octagonal grid. By taking what I had initially envisioned for the digital version, I created a new set of letters in 3D using paper, an x-acto knife and, of course, love (corny but true) !
