FdA Second Year, Week 7 (2/11/2015) – Fucking Isometrics

No, but really. I absolutely love doing typeface design, and I absolutely love playing with isometric shapes but putting them both together is absolute hell. Either way, these are some isometric 3D typeface forms, first hand-drawn and then illustrated in Adobe Illustrator. After putting them in Illustrator I had to separate the layers and I…

FdA Second Year, Week 5 (19/10/2015) – Read, Think, Make

Three words. Three fucking words. Three fucking words that gave me one hell of a headache while I scampered about for ideas about what to base my work off of.
