I’m thinking about my typeface, and I decided to relate it to something important in my life. I’m leaning towards something urban and dynamic, with a youthful feel. It’ll be my homage to MyARTS.
So, some keywords I have in mind:
- high school
So, here’s some visual things I have in mind:
- varied slope (only slightly varied. nothing too crazy)
- combinations of round and angular shapes
- unconventional absence (or limited use of) counters
Despite the urbanness of my typeface, I want to stay away from the whole graffiti/tagging/handwriting look. I want to allude to that and make it feel hand-rendered without it being overly so. If that makes sense. I hope it does. I want it to be more hipster than ghetto.
…Not to get ahead of myself, but I’d be really interested in continuing this typeface after this project is done and graded. I’d like to have various weights, ligatures, display & text versions, etc. That’d be fun.
