Here’s an animated typeface born out of a simple observation. Learning a language is an emotional journey.
Since the Roman alphabet is the only writing system with separate capital and small letters, educators say it always poses an initial learning challenge for children.

As a child, I always imagined, that the capital letters in the English language were the ‘elders’ and that the small ones were ‘children’ who would one day grow up to become good capitals. This led to me to conceptualising ‘Children of Type’, an animated typeface designed to make children love the Roman alphabet despite their oddities. Just how families love each other.

At the intersection of learning, language, emotion and human relationships, this helps stimulate the cognitive, creative, social and emotional development in a child.
