LSTK Dayfly

The typeface LSTK Dayfly was created in a little more than a day at the OPEN OFFICE event at VIENNA DESIGN WEEK. 

The name "dayfly" derives from the word "mayfly", an insect that lives for the average of a day only. Releasing the font to the public, even though still being in early stages of prototyping, questions the reality of the loss of craftsmanship to industrialised processes and production techniques and raises an important question: What can be achieved in a day?

Disclaimer: The font LSTK Dayfly is available in Opent Type (.OTF) format which is platform independent and can be used on Mac & PC. Certain parameters like kerning, letter spacing and line spacing might have to be tweaked manually, depending on which OS and texteditor / design app you are planning to use. Keep in mind we didn’t work on it for years, just a bit more than a day. Use at your own risk.
