Once Upon A Time is a documentation of a trip to the Chihuahuan Desert and a specimen poster collection of four experimental typefaces inspired by this desert trip. The Desert environment is alien to most people, so this publication is dedicated to bringing familiarity to unfamiliarity while using the novel perspective to make a narrative in-between reality and illusionary unreality by using experimental typefaces to change the legibility.

In MiXeR, the fusion of uppercase and lowercase makes the alphabet alien yet highly readable. All the letter cases should have the same right of speaking in the same volume without losing the characteristic of each individual because the difference is allowed to exist. The new closed relationship, the intertwined structure that comes with the consonant voice of the new alphabet here, is a visual manifesto of our posthuman future.
