I worked with Katie Gwynn-Sackson to design the Neue Epoch typeface that represents our interpretations of the anthropocene.
The Anthropocene is a time defined by human dominance of Earth’s geology and ecosystems. An idea born from a technologically advanced perspective and characterized by a profound magnitude of self-awareness. We have no coordinates to ground ourselves and we often feel overwhelmingly guilty for our geological impact. In recent times we have created a false separation between human actions and nature. The truth is that everything we know is nature. Our self-awareness leads us to overwhelming feelings of guilt about humanity. Every second, we are thrust forward toward a future we cannot imagine, yet know so much about. And yet, as we make our way forward into an abstract space, we find a newfound freedom in surrendering to a world that is neither here nor there.
