Lasio grotesk – Animated typeface

Lasio Grotesk is available at:

Originally conceived as an animation exercise, the “animated alphated” ( has become a typeface.

Lasio grotesk is a sans serif typeface that only has uppercase characters. The reason for this limitation is that every letter morphs from a geometric form. This is not impossible to make with the lower case letters, but much more difficult.
Inittially the typography was based on the proportions of Paul Renner´s masterpiece FUTURA because of his geometrical shapes. After dealing with path and shapes in After Effects I had to make some compromises. The thing is that I started to enjoy the changes on the design of each character and then I started to think on small changes that give the whole typeface a more personal look. Then I thought on the name and making the numerals and some punctuaction signs.

That´s all!
Thanks a lot for watching.
