Wonk is a versatile and quirky typeface and ornament system that combines geometric, biomorphic, and 2- and 3-D forms. Spontaneous or controlled, this modular typeface enables a user to construct various simple or complex shapes into letterforms. Its diverse palette of parts allows for a built-in process of play and enables discovery and imagination. Conceptually, this font is a type treatment that both subverts a kit-of-parts and subverts parts into a kit. These posters reflect how other designers have engineered Wonk. The phrase “I am apart (a part) of the system” highlights the irony of creating something that appears to be unique or customized, when in fact it’s made from basic uniformed components.
