Cluster Multi is an orthographic exploration conceived as part of an honours project based on a thesis exploring foreign writing systems and letterforms.
It is a display typeface and writing system. Similar to the Hangul system of Korea, letters are used or stacked in such a way, based on a carefully considered grid system to form a ‘syllabic cluster’.
These clusters are a representation of the syllables used to pronounce each word. The typeface was designed to accommodate the multi-spaced nature of the system. That is, each character has to be flexible enough to fill three different spaces, and therefore three variations of every letter are required, making a total character set of 78.
