Typeface "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 did, everywhere in the world. Based on my own
experience in London, I decided
to use these informations to show how I tend to take more and more the same roads.
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.
