By meaning, a monolith is a geological feature consisting of a large stone or rock. A mountain range is a monolith. To therefore label something as monolithic, perhaps in relation to architecture, is to suggest it is akin to something greater than simply man-made.
Two typefaces were designed as part of this exploration, both centred upon heritage and a belief that type itself can be a signifier of a larger story. They are woven together through the idea of Tukutuku, a traditional Maori weave often used as a metaphor for oneness. Each publication in this set of three, therefore shares its space with the rest. Much like a typeface, the physical output of this project becomes whole only when brought together.
