Modular Type

During the session after each member of the group had presented initial ideas we decided to use my type design to create a draft type face, using a triangle/ isometric grid paper I created a system whereby each letter form contained the same size triangle.


After discussing the typeface further with my group we decided on a half filled half outline but stick with system of the triangle in each letter, I chose to create a ‘j’ digitally and this being the result;


The final ‘j’ is quite abstract which i think is its best feature as well as the mixture of the filled and outline shapes, however the actual computer rendering of the letter form is quite untidy where the descender connects to the top of the ‘j’ proving I need to put in some more practice with illustrator.
