That modern serif font is based upon the concept of « whispering » : Low speech pronounced softly without using the full voice. Mostly ears can’t hear all the words contained in a sentence when someone is whispering. Nevertheless, the brain is able to guess the meaning. Here I wanted to represent a specific whisper, a specific atmosphere: paranormal, strange or scary
The brain can do exactly the same with eyes. Humans don’t need to see a full letter to read it. But the missing parts have to be in the rights places, without that a work can be really hard to understand. Here was my goal, trying to find a good balance between hiding parts and revealed parts.
