Eight Heads High, collectively designed typeface by HATO

An immersive digital installation that invites the audience to take part in the design of a typeface with their bodies.

Inspired by Italian artistic history from humanism up to the present days, Hato interprets the central role of Leonardo’s Vitruvian Man through nowadays language and tools.

People’s bodies will be the core device for creating the letters that will compose the final alphabet. Once ready, the latter will be shareable and usable on any kind of computer. HATO is a design studio based both in London and Hong Kong focused on the design impact on individuals and society. The project falls under the research that Hato defined as “Playtotype”, where everyone is invited to make his move and add to the collection of letter forms.
