The challenge was to create a typeface using only a grid. When experimenting with forms, I was intrigued by the negative space created by combining round and square characteristics. It was difficult to make a few letters, such as the "Q" and the "X," while maintaining the structure of the grid. However, this exercise was an enlightening opportunity to explore the many ways one can communicate through typography.
After completing the typeface, I was tasked with creating a lecture series poster concept for the UT School of Architecture using the typeface I created.
I took the "A," enlarged it, and highlighted the grid structure beneath to enhance the concept of a constructed form. The simplicity allows the information to be easily read and understood.
