Original Typography Face
This headliner oriented, designer type face is still being modified after two years of study and practical usage wherein I can see just how the letters react with each other in type sets that I cannot imagine. The face is not designed for use as a body type face, but rather for illustrated words or designer headlines that call out an importance. The design has not been used commercially yet as I am still reworking problems that seem to arise when being used. The shapes are not yet vectored as there are still changes to come.
At upper middle is the original concept wherein the word “DeSign” was illustrated in a methodology course which caused the inspiration to do an original type face design in a typography course while I was working on a Master’s Degree from Savannah College of Art and Design. I was able to relate the two courses together for a common purpose at the time.
Currently there are four projects wherein I can take the project further and test letter relationships to each other as they are used together.
“zuEfrischen 1” on Panel 4 is the primary use at the present in an ongoing process of bringing back a really rare, old car from the dead of a rusty old hulk. The exhibition poster on Panel 2 uses the face most prolifically with several lines of type the are beginning to show how the letters relate to each other on longer lines of type. When I feel that the design meets typography design standards the ultimate goal is to attempt to register and market it with a type house.
