Overview

The brief is to explore the typography world and create a display typeface. As a starting point, I looked into abstract shapes. After numerous experimentation, I decided to create an uppercase display typeface experimenting with layers and gradients in a three-dimensional space.

The Process

Starting out with creating a simple letter in Illustrator using line/pen tools. Then using shear tool to change the angles and perspective of the letter as well as adjusting the stroke and colour.

Next, overlapping the letters and use blend mode to experiment with multilayers as well as desired colour palette to play around with different gradient effect.

Final Posters
