ORKYD is an experimental display typeface inspired by the mystique of the blooming orchid plant and the orchid mania of the 90, the must-havehouseplant of the 90s. ORKYD is part of the senior thesis project Greenhouse.
Like the flower, ORKYD is a bold typeface perfect as a center piece. ORKYD grew out of the mystery of the grocery store orchid,the houseplant that is always for sale but rarely seen in the home. After many experimentations with a parallel pen, its final letter forms mimic the symmetry of an orchid’s petals and represent its uniqueness as a houseplant.
