Typeface Design

The final assignment in Type II is to design our own typeface. We will be making a short type specimen booklet for it as well.

I named mine Beatrice.

I was inspired by art deco tendencies as well as victorian architecture (which we are learning about in my art history class).  I created most letters using a circle of one size but there are a few other circles used as well. I also used a single weight line in every letter. I really like thin type.  I think I will expand it into a full typeface with caps and lowercase letters, but we are only required to have the letters used in the name itself.

Here are a few pictures I used for inspiration, but mostly I was going off ideas I had in my head.

  1. I love it! The art deco element definitely shines through.
