Hoang Nguyen (IG) was involved in designing and implementing the 2019 edition of the annual “Next Generation” campaign of the FHNW Academy of Art and Design in Basel in which the academy and its most recent graduates get promoted. Two of the applications that were designed by Hoang Nguyen are a flyer, of which the different words could be peeled off and used as stickers, and a bag that was distributed at various events of the FHNW Academy of Art and Design.
In this context, the first few characters of Generation Mono were drawn. Its design is ultrawide and lends itself to be set vertically, which was its main use for posters and other applications. Together with David Gobber (IG), the character set got expanded to cover the basic Latin alphabet, including all figures and some of the most essential interpunctuation. To support the “next generation(s)” of designers Generation Mono was recently released as a free font which can be used in both commercial and non-commercial projects.
