Design duo Benedikt Groß and Joey Lee are on a new mission: to build a font, dubbed Aerial Bold, from satellite imagery of architectural and infrastructural letterforms across Earth. It’s nothing short of a planetary typeface, but their ambition doesn’t stop there. They’re hoping to develop a set of tools for non-domain experts (regular folks) to explore geographic data and use it in new, imaginative ways. The project is now live on Kickstarter.
