Base Pair (Colour)

Based on the word Erudite, which means having or showing great knowledge or learning. I chose to be inspired by the notion that DNA is made up of four bases and that type can also be constructed from four distinct components.

The two versions are used together along with a random DNA sequence generator that codes for the letters used when someone types. The look of the sentence is therefore different and unique each time you type it. Much like a person’s DNA.
