Minimal Alphabet

The other night I wanted to see if I could design a type face as minimally as possible. Starting with a base rectangle and seeing how I could distinguish each letterform with as few visual cues as possible. This was what I cam up with in my first 2 hour pass. I see a few things I'd maybe have done differently now, but as a thought experiment I think it shows what's possible.

I know more than a few people have tested their own minimal fonts/typography against the word minimum as well because of the similar letterforms so I thought it was a good test for this as well.

Got bored and fidgety so I started playing around in Illustrator and then Photoshop. This was the result. Context, I live in Inglewood.

Clothes & Clothes Sans

Over the past month I've been developing a pair of complementary fonts titled "Clothes" and "Clothes Sans." I wanted to do something that was completely hand drawn because It's an area that I know I need to practice more. I use vector as a crutch with illustrations and wanted to get out of my comfort zone.

Homer Simpson

I was playing around with some new Procreate brushes and had some fun with an old Simpsons quotes last night. Here was the final result of that.

Beyond Nike

Just doing a little bit more lettering on my iPad because it had been awhile. Wanted to try combining a few different styles to see how it would come out.

Not loving how the DO fits in with the rest of it even if I like how it came out independently. Do like how the IT fits into the swash of the k though.

Nugz & Hugs

This phrase popped into my head the other week so I decided to make a lettering project out of it. Figuring out how to recreate the texture of a chicken nugget is just as weird and challenging as it sounds. Well, maybe making ketchup type was harder.

The World/Inferno Friendship Society

I've been wanting to get more into lettering so I finally sat down with my iPad to give it a go. I used a lyric from one of my favorite bands, The World/Inferno Friendship Society.

I made a book

Working with Sunita Deshpande, I helped create an illustrated alphabet book. Originally it was for my nephew's second birthday, but enough people wanted copies that we are producing a first edition on our own. Find out more here.
