My Type Face

Creating fonts are much harder than I expected. I personally had an original design in my head that looked similar to my handwriting. Since I was expecting to manipulate the software in order for the font look like I took a pen and wrote directly on the screen, I was disappointed that I couldn’t personalize it the way I imagined.

I then started to play around with the online font maker and found that you can only adjust certain aspects. The way I saw it was that you were really only moving the notches to discover fonts that are probably already in existence.

When I accidentally put a random number in the “superness” box, my font made a really funny shape with certain letters so I thought I’d build on that.

From there, I made my font look like this. It’s not a font that you would use on a daily basis, but I think that if you were to make a poster that fit the aesthetic of the font then it would look really good.

My design fits into a grid perfectly because all of the lower case letters are equal, as well as the capital letters. The lower case are half the size of the upper case, so it makes the font flow easily into one another. I like how all the letters are cohesive and look similar to the other.
