A one semester course to develop a working digital font. The course took place on Spring 2001 at University of Art and Design, Helsinki. The Fondue-participants were the students from that same academy: Jue Feng, Dimitrios Gazis, Laticia Gonzalez, Janne Haila, Asko Heikkinen, Jarkko Hyppönen, Janne Hänninen, Reka Kiraly, Anna Melich, Tommi Musturi, Agata Opyrchal, Hella Pakaslahti, Ville Salomaa, Tiina Uusitalo and Shang Zhidi. The course was held by Kai Rentola (the teacher of typography at the academy) and Sami Kortemäki.
The goal of the course was to present the font as a poster in an exhibition. This 'hot and cheezy, international graphic soup' was exhibited at the Museum of Art and Design Helsinki. On this website you can see the samples of each font, presented in a promotion poster for the exhibition. Click yourself through, there's detailed info of each work included.
