Rose Sans is a condensed geometric sans serif typeface that I created with the idea of the letters emulating that of a rose. The high x-heights and long stems lended me to the idea of displaying the letters intertwining within each other.

I started this typeface while in Basel and finished a full alphabet when returning to Seattle. Phillip challenged me to make both a circular and elliptical version of the word “Rose”. This was used to inspire the rest of the letters.
