FAX is inspired by how a fax machine works: it takes an existing font, copies it while degrading its quality. To achieve this effect, I made a stylus using two pens attached to a stick, which functions like a pantograph and lets me trace the existing typeface imperfectly.

Design Process

A fax machine degrades the image during the transmission, and I wanted to mimic the degredation process for the new typeface. 

I made a stylus attaching two pens together. When I trace the existing type with the stylus, it translates the letterforms onto another piece of paper.
