“The Pattern Exchange was commissioned by Workhouse Union as the display typeface for a group exhibition of the same name. They guest-curated the show for Temple Bar Gallery in Dublin, Ireland in 2015. This modular typeface developed from the idea that rather than being a mere decoration, the pattern could form the actual structure of the glyphs. The font can still be downloaded for free from the gallery website.”
