The Five Faces

As an introduction to typography 1 we were given five typefaces to recreate by hand. This proved to be pretty challenging, but nevertheless i was stoked. I found it was easier to pick apart the font than to try and draw the form as a whole. I focused on the shapes used in the counter forms and negative space to create the foundation of the font. The harder i focused on the small intimate areas of each letter, the more successful they became. Just by drawing one lowercase letter, i learned tons about the rhythm in the font.
