Alphabet Soup

The Brief: To design a typeface for a full alphabet and glyphs that represents the personalitly/character of your partner.

My character was Sai and I made the decision to base my alphabet on her first memory which was Christmas in Hong Kong, I wanted to use the skyline and cityscape visuals to incorporate into the letters.


After the feedback I was given in the final crit, I reworked a selection of letters with the advice I was given. I toned down the letters taking the excess buildings away so they were individual buildings with blocks of colour which would work as a set to create a skyline effect.

This week, in groups, we all brought in a selection of boxes, the task was to use these boxes to create a series of planes which when seen through a view finder would make up a letterform. The idea of the channel 4 advert. We chose an F, although the outcome wasn't too successful.

Alphabet Soup

We were asked to produce a series or sequence of ten letterforms that explore and communicate our own interpretation of a given word, my word being exaggerate. The letterforms we created were to be based on existing ones which we were to manipulate to communicate the word.
