Herbert Bayer’s “Universal” is a famous modern typeface. It is only consisted of “straight line” and “circle”. But it does not totally get out of a hand writing from old age. In spite of this, his concept of typeface is interesting until now because of geometric foundation and synthetic construction of letters which is made of a few basic elements. However, limitation of “Universal” is that it can’t express various style of universal people. The real meaning of universal is various style not just one. So I propose new ways of various expression of letter more than “Universal”. It is called as “Diverse”.
