Dot and dash typeface inspired by morse code

morse code typeface

The typeface will be used across all of Jonah Goodman's outlets

Chinese graphic designer Grant Li (opens in new tab) was given the task of creating a brand new identity for writer and designer Jonah Goodman. Taking inspiration from the fact that Goodman can speak five different languages, Li created this rather lovely morse code-inspired typeface.

Describing morse code as a 'graphical language', Li has crafted a truly unique font. Made up of mostly dots and dashes, the letters are more readable than you might think - although writing a whole sentence may well take up a whole paragraph!

The typeface will be used across Goodman's flyers, business cards and his website. Although there's currently no 'Q' included in the font, we still think this original offering a work of art. What do you make of it?
