The Trhan typeface was conceived in a similar fashion to the designer’s other typographic projects: quickly, on a sudden impulse and on the basis of a simple idea. The letters were torn into pieces of paper with nail scissors and then scanned with minimal post-retouching afterwards. It invites you for a journey back to xeroxed zines, where a distinctive designer font and the joy of a black and white photocopy is more important than clinging on to lamentably regular typesetting convention.
