What is the pt (point) examines my role in graphic design and potential contribution to the vast terrain of typefaces and explores how type scale can intertwine through emotion, form and system within various frameworks. I explore various typefaces that can serve as a catalyst for my designs. My methodology centers the fusion between readability and captivating visual allure. It signifies a departure where typefaces are not just carriers of words but also the handlers of design, marking their transition from conveyors of words to convoy of expression, prompting a profound reconsideration of their significance to my work.  

The publication also includes interviews with Zin Nagao, Aleks Dawson, Isabel Serna, and Ben Fehrman-Lee.
