Graphic designers will probably know this visual equation for a fact : r+n = m.
Yet, when it comes to the other 676 possible two-letter additions, we are generally clueless: (a+b=?), (j+k=?), (e+n=?), etc. As a visual writing system made solely of two-letter combinations, AlphaBeta is an extension of the r+n formula.
This hypothetical typeface uses the Helvetica letter-shapes, and considers all possible two-letter amalgams of lower-case letters from the modern core Latin alphabet.
AlphaBeta is a versatile system, as each letter combination can potentially be designed in many various ways. The resulting set of symbols could be used for measurement units, or combined as a coded script. The AlphaBeta Apparatus toolkit enables one to mix letters together to create unique new blends, or combine ready-blended letters into sentences.
