When I think of a modern news cycle, I am in awe of its effect on life. Being cooped up inside and under a nationwide bit of confusion, one constant is that the stories that shape today are all too familiar, extremely quick-lived, and mostly painful. The concept is to make a headline typeface as ugly as now is.


Slimes New Roman is a two-parts project that I have been working on and off of over a couple of years. It is made up of a hand-drawn serif typeface based on Times, and the some javascript that utilizes New York Times API.
