I DECONSTRUCTED BRIAN SOOY'S typeface Verve to find the main modular components that compose it, documented them, and derived the algorithms by which the type face was assembled. I documented the analysis in a graphic which both displays the structural properties of the font and functions as a manual for its construction.

After completing this, I streamlined the recipe creating least-common-algorithm which I used to develop a program in Macromedia Director to create typefaces using pasted clipboard imagery as the modular typographic components.
