TYPE 1: The process of Project One (Part 1)
September 6, 2012 nick howland

The first project in Type 1, I feel, was all about the study of the anatomy of typefaces. It dealt with deconstructing letterforms, determining the characteristics of the letterform, then abstracting it or creating a perfect reproduction of it.
The first part of the project dealt with listing the adjectives we thought best described the letterform, then applying these adjectives in redesigning the letterform. It was an interesting concept to grasp at first, but I’m fairly happy with how they turned out. It was a great introduction to the last half of the projects.
