For their new collection of typefaces, France-based foundry typelab asked me to create sounds that represent each of them. The sounds are part of a web experience, where users can navigate through a virtual 3D environment and explore different islands where the typefaces are located. Depending on what island you’re currently on, the sound changes.
Taking inspiration from nature, the sound concept consists of implementing samples of water, breaking ice, forests and combining them with eclectic synth melodies. The goal was to create an intriguing yet unobtrusive soundscape for an immersive experience.
