Marcd is a hyper-multidisciplinary design studio based in Brooklyn, New York making things both digitally and physically. We work out of our apartment at an IKEA Linnmon desk. Marcd is two people. We don't have a studio but we can meet you anywhere or you can stop by if you'd like. We each have one phone, so you can call us too. We'd love to work together on whatever you're thinking about doing with your life.
"According to a researcher (sic) at Cambridge University, it doesn't matter in what order the letters in a word are, the only important thing is that the first and last letter be at the right place. The rest can be a total mess and you can still read it without problem. This is because the human mind does not read every letter by itself but the word as a whole." - University of Cambridge
Marcd FL Typeface (FL is First Last BTW (BTW is By The Way)) was created as a result of this study to question the limits to which our eyes could adjust in order to efficiently make sense of scrambled text. In this case, it's a bit more difficult. Instead of scrambled, the letters are scribbled. We use the system sans-serif typeface to render the first and last letters and marcd's custom designed FL Typeface to renders the letters in between. See the JSFiddle for the scripts on how it works or follow the link to our github to download all of the files - including the FL Typeface
