was impressed with the concept.Overall I am content with how the project went and I am really proud of my final design.
My final typeface in upper-case presented on a 4 x 7 grid:
My final typeface in lower-case:
Numbers and Symbols:
Final grid for the typeface: Something I struggled with and in the end kept simple. Futura at the end of the day is an extremely geometric and simplistic font to look at. It is in fact a highly complex typeface when looked at in more detail. I needed to devise a grid that I could use effectively. What I have done in my typeface design is simplify Futura even more by de-constructing the outlines of the letter forms and reducing their stroke weights. Therefore the final grid for the letter forms had to be simple. The grid accommodates the upper-case letters, and I am pleased with it.
I also looked at a quote to do with passivity from the English novelist Christopher Isherwood:
'I am a camera
I really enjoy this quote and find it relevant to my self. I find it easy to relate to and I believe it would look fantastic presented in my typeface.
