RandomWiki is a typeface family created by the students of the G5 Communication 360 class (LISAA Graphisme, Paris, Fr), during a type design initiation workshop given by Lucas Descroix and Benjamin Dumond (Bonjour Monde), in February 2023.
Students were each asked to create a display typeface based on a Wikipedia article chosen at random. In order to get an interesting conceptual distance they first gathered words and images, then explored abstract rhythms by hand.
These 15 fonts and accompagnying specimen material have been entirely designed and generated by students during a one-week workshop. They are available under CC BY-ND 4.0 license and as is, without any warranty. Neither Bonjour Monde nor the students shall be held responsible for any issue resulting from downloading and/or using the RandomWiki font files. That said, have fun!
