Pillbox Sans

I constructed a physical typeface, using a pillbox with 28 slots (four slots per day), and a set of pills. The pillbox served as a 7×4 grid, and I created each letter by adding and removing pills from the slots. I created the typeface in response to the discussion of the state of healthcare in the U.S., and the growing rate of overmedication by both doctors and patients.
