ABOUT

I expanded on the national symbolism of Oceania, as described by George Orwell in his novel 1984. I imagined an aesthetic that could have developed from early modernist and constructivist styles into an alternate future in which resources are scarce. Orwell also mentions writing machines, so I imagined the typesetting to be mechanised, using a monospaced font which I named ‘Newtype’ (after the impoverished form of English that Orwell called ‘Newspeak’).
