As I sift through beautiful typeface after beautiful typeface for inspiration for the next type project (typeface / design), my heart is a bit torn between two very different styles: a more fun, informal scripted typefaces and a, still somewhat informal, geometric sans-seriff. Reflecting on how formal my typography has been this semester, I do feel a strong need to get to back to my illustrative roots and just have fun with this. Make something that I love, make something that is me. I think it might be time to take this tie off and go a bit crazy.
