Typography III, Spring 2017

A display typeface inspired by late 20th and early 21st century children’s picture books.


 The early process of designing this typeface consisted of painting various letterforms with Plaka in order to figure out the stroke, x-height, and axis standards for the entire typeface.

 After creating a solid foundation for each letter using Plaka, I then scanned in each letterform and began to finalize them digitally. Once my typeface was complete I designed a type specimen poster in order to showcase the personality and function of my typeface in use.
