For the first time, I was asked to do work on a typography project that I have always wanted to do and never had the chance to work on. Our type experiment instructor gave us the chance to pick any topic or type technique. I always wanted to design a typeface and this was a great opportunity to be able to create my own typeface and be critiqued by a very good typographer who guided me in the right direction to make the typeface look unique and clean,

By the end of the class, I was able to design all the Caps, which would be mainly for headlines and/or logotype. After finishing the semester I went back to my typeface and designed all the numbers as well as glyphs then developed it.
