Miu
Font family
2020

Miu is a san serif typeface developed outside of Google Brand Studio. Miu currently has a complete Latin glyph set containing 250+ glyphs. I'm currently working on light, bold, and stencil weights of Miu to be used in upcoming projects.

Because Miu is still in development, you can see additional process images, sketches, etc. in the process work section at the bottom of this page.

Above is an application sketch for the first finished weight of Miu. The font is geometric and relatively evenly weighted. The font's primary distinguishing characteristic is its small pixel-like ink traps.

Below: the redesign of the Wild-Type logo. The development of Miu began when I set out to draw a custom logotype for Wild-Type—a hardware experiments brand I use frequently for independent projects. The original Wild-Type logo was set in Neue Haas Grotesk Display; Miu takes many design queues from Neue Haas, Helvetica, and Neuzeit—three of my favorite typefaces.

The redrawn Wild-Type logo is lighter and more narrow. The letters are finely spaced and the rectangular twiddle of the original 'i' is replaced with a round form.

In just a few weeks, I drew a complete Latin glyph set for Miu. While some glyphs are still being altered as I continue to draw additional weights, the majority of the forms are near completion.

Below, a few of the glyphs I most enjoyed drawing.

Lastly, an application sketch for a rebrand of sustainable clothing brand Reformation using Miu (and an alternate 'a' glyph).

Again, this project is still in development, so you can see more work in progeress images on the process work page. If you'd like to try a demo version of Miu, please reach out to me via my contact page.
