Needed to do something with all that stuff on my desk.
Design a typeface selected from elements from the world around you.
timeboxing: wandering 1 hour, brainstorming 30min, rough 60min, final 2 hours.
Since this will be made from elements from the world around me, I’ve added an hour of wandering to find elements to add to the typeface.
Wandering 1 hour :
Wandering around, jotting down notes, looking around for something that could be a type face. One idea was to take pictures of the back of cars, and blotch out all the letters and numbers on the license plate except for the one I wanted.
Brainstorming 30 minutes:
Funny thing about brainstorming, you have an idea that you really don’t like and when you draw it down you end up getting an idea of something you do like. Doodling brainstorming seems to work better then just wordular brainstorming (at least for me.)
