Boris Meister Projects Info
Karl, Samo

As a nominee at Bourses Berthoud, Lissignol-Chevalier, Galland, I presented a selection of 3 work-in-progress typefaces started much earlier while working on various projects.

Above is a view of the installation, Centre d’art contemporain Genève, 2015.


Karl is a revival of Karl Gerstner’s beautiful Program, which hadn’t been digitalised at the time I was working on it.


SAMO-A is based on a found sample of wood with 4 deeply engraved letters on it. The typeface was started in 2012 and first used on a project for the Walker Art Center.


SAMO-B is the outline version, designed to work both on its own and in combination with SAMO-A.
