Transparent gained its name after its first use – on the transparent of the Artist led action “Letter”, a contemporary reenactment of Tadeusz Kantor’s 1967 happening held in spring 2020. The action was a gesture of artistic protest against the attempts to organise presidential elections during the pandemic. Transparent is a sans-serif, display typeface with large differences between thick and thin strokes. It is wide, bold, technical in character, and derives from the handlettering used on signs. Transparent was designed to be visible and legible from a distance. It has no decorative details, and is simple to apply to any surface using basic tools. The typeface has a set of uppercase letters, digits, a set of Polish and German diacritics and basic currency symbols.
