A typographic interpretation of the word Glitch

With Yiddish roots and mysterious origins, the word glitch has slowly expanded its meaning overtime. Though an association with technology has always remained, glitch's different applications have grown in number since it's first recording in the english language. Conceptually this publication grapples with glitch's ability to embody an interruption, a fault, a malfunction and an irregularity. It brings to light how a glitch can be obvious, dramatic and disturbingly beautiful, while also invisible to the naked eye until 'it's fallout effects the functionality of a system'.This project was in response to the 2018 ISTD brief 'Mark My Words'. As a result, Glitch was awarded with a pass and granted me membership into the International Society of Typographic Designers (ISTD).
