BIC: The Universal Typeface Experiment
Typography meets typology in this experiment. The idea was to crowdsource handwriting contributions from around the world and combine them into a single typeface.
In less than a month more than a million contributions were uploaded. The project continues to evolve as more and more people join in. From the website you can download different versions of the Universal Typeface. You can also explore it through various demographics. It is still possible to join by uploading your handwriting.
The project was produced by Dutch digital production company MediaMonks after an idea by Design agency DDB Tribal Düsseldorf for their client BIC.
