Prune is a sans-serif typeface inspired by the importance of trimming houseplants for healthy growth. Much like a pruned plant, trimmed serifs and sharp finals exemplify the bare necessities of a typeface. Prune is part of the senior thesis project Greenhouse.
Prune was the vessel in which I taught myself typeface design; it’s forms are that of a basic sans serif with little experimentation. Creating this typeface made me intimate with each letter form; teaching me that every curve, every angle,even down to a single pixel can make a big impact on the overall design. I wanted to include a basic sans serif in Greenhouse as well to users access to a simple typeface that can be used in many instances.
