Typographie "Habit"

This work is based on the idea
of repetition, pattern and systematization. My aim was to create a system that shows how habit emerges. I’ve chosen to work on the rides I do everyday.
On google map it is possible to see every single ride I’ve done, everywhere in the world. Based on my own experience in London,
I’ve decided to use these informations to show how I tend to take more and more the same roads to move in the city. I created a typeface that shows, with symbols, the actions I do when I move
in the city (turn left, take a bus,
go upstairs, cross a road etc.)
so that it is possible to write my rides. The more I take the same road, the bolder the font becomes.
I wanted to give information about the weather as well. I then made four variantes of the typeface: Habit Sunny, Habit Slightly Cloudy, Habit Cloudy and Habit Rainy.
The outcome is a typeface that anybody can use, and a booklet that shows all my rides of February written with my typeface.
