Random bit from sketchbook.
Typography practice from sketchbook.
Another hexagon font test.
Trying out the hexagonal typeface as a poster.
hex_test4 font lower case
Hex_test 5 - larger hexagonal typeface
Trying out type on a hexagonal grid.
Extending from my last post on isometric pattern-based typography, I tried it again but making the letters larger this time. Although it’s still awkward in areas, I found it gets easier the more triangles you have at your disposal.
I’ve been meaning to experiment with type on isometric patterns. I just quickly tried this out last night, so you can see some letters need work done, but others work well.
Started again with this font. Looks a lot better and I tried it out as the cover page design idea. Still needs some touching up (some letters look a bit dodgy) but I’m making progress…
A bit of a failed attempt at an idea I had for the front cover title text. Too many inconsistencies and I will make it more blocky instead so it’s inline with the book style.
Here’s a typeface I tried out using rings/circles as a guide. I know I said I’d lay off circles for a bit but I really want to experiment more with this whole circle typeface thing… This was originally the style I came up with for the kid’s book cover, but as you can see it’s not really an ideal typeface for that kind of audience. I think I’ll develop this a bit more, then I’ll work on the other idea I had for the book cover type.
