Büro Destruct, a design studio in Bern, is tasked with developing a custom font to promote a pen by German marker company Edding. This short documentary directed by Kai Sehr goes behind the scenes with the studio's team to look at the creative process of designing the font. The otherwise basic short film comes to life with animated typography, which appears to float through the studio. The free font is available at TypeForType.com
