This typography project is inspired by Borneo’s (Dayak) ornament. The initial element of this typeface is the symmetrical swirls in Dayak traditional ornaments. The swirls attached & piled up one to another. Most of the ornaments visualized a face or a man, which taken & altered into the design (fangs, diamond-y shapes, circles, & swirls). This typeface use several module for its stroke & tail, but if the letters are combined, the typeface would still be harmonic.
