A modular set of font families.

The four families in The Proteus Project were built on related character widths, allowing their designs to be interchanged almost invisibly.

The Proteus Project: Interchangeable widths

These fonts were designed in response to an age-old question: how can a fixed format be changed without resorting to a full redesign? Ziggurat, Leviathan, Saracen and Acropolis were designed around a common set of proportions, allowing them to be substituted for one another almost invisibly. This offers editorial designers the ability to periodically refresh their formats, without having to anticipate any changes in copyfitting. For packaging designers, these related fonts offer a natural way for line extensions to refer back to the original product, without directly imitating its design.
