Addressing the essence of decoration, Phiz is a tour de force exploring an eclectic diversity of possibilities, all applied to the same root style of Shinn’s neo-Victorian revival Figgins Sans. Four sub-families comprise a suite of variations: (1) the Classic styles of the early 19th century, (2) the Rounded forms of the mid 20th century, (3) the Rough patina of the 21st, and (4) a novelty: glyphs generated by a profusion of repetitive graphic Particles, programmed to stochastically occupy character shapes. A multitude of layering effects ensues.
