Creator Santiago Ortiz explains that Typode is a “simple font described with coordinates so it can be freely reshaped, distorted, or mapped. [He] created it to be used in certain information visualization contexts, in which text needs to adapt to specific shapes.”
The type design itself is basic, very rigid and geometric, based only on straight lines, but this allows for the points of each glyph to be manipulated.
