UNIFORM is an all-caps, slightly condensed, heavy weight, low-contrast typeface with chopped curves, and 90° counters. These qualities visually connect the type to the letters found on the backs of uniforms and the sides of military vehicles. Setting any word, phrase, or sentence in Uniform causes the tone to seem official and blunt. 
This Project was a Collaborative Effort
TYPE DESIGN: Nick Adam
PROMPT: Design a In-Put Out-Put system | PROFESSOR: E Roon Kang

UNIFROM was drawn, designed, and spaced in Glyphs in 9 hours when designer E Roon Kang came to RISD as part of the Visiting Designer Series, he prompted the class to create input/output systems 
in which there would be a causal relationship.

t-shirts were made with opaque white vinyl, people were able to select ‘gestalt’ or ‘public’ shirts

The words ‘public’ and ‘gestalt’ were then set in Uniform, cut in vinyl and applied to the shoulder portion of the backs of t-shirts, transforming the shirt into a uniform. These lettered shirts where given to friends and designer E Roon Kang to wear. Through gestalt, this type style and the placement on the shirt transformed the individual bodies into a connected body of authority.
