Dion Tuckwell is an educator and researcher at Monash University, and designer in Melbourne, Australia. Dion taught us when we all studied Honours at Monash in 2019. Dion asked us to help him host his PhD thesis in a comprehensive online reader format. Working alongside Dion, we designed a custom site, editable through the backend which we developed on Ruby on Rails. This website acts as an exhibition of Dion Tuckwell’s PhD for an online context.
Alongside the site, we created a custom typeface inspired by tape letters created by Dion in his workshops. Tapeface (the typeface) is available to download for free right now, live on the site! Thanks Dion for working with us, we miss being studio neighbours with you. 👩💻🧑💻👨💻
Go check out the site, have a read, scroll around, and use the stamping tools we made, all inspired by Dion’s tactile and affective approach to design 📚📎
