TYPOGRAPHIC LEGOMENON
Omnigroup

First used in the context of the release of the typeface Apax, from Optimo: ‘Here is Apax! A typographic legomenon by François Rappo that explores constructivism through a modernist lense.’ A typographic legomenon is used to describe typographic work that is a one of a kind, whose features can be clearly attributed to a specific designer. It is a play on words of the term ‘hapax legomenon,’ which is part of a method used to identify the authors of ancient texts.
