    Wolfram Typeface is inspired by a stack of chairs observed in the school hallway. The pattern discovered in the chairs first became vectorized, and after some time turned out to be an entire norwegian alphabet, including all the numbers 0-9.

    Wolfram Typeface is a display typeface, not to be used in long sentences or words longer than ten letters. It is a typeface that is mostly meant for illustrational use.

    The typeface was originally intended for the design of the jazz-group Wolfram Trio´s albumcover, wich explains the name of the typeface.
