36 DAYS OF TYPE
For 2019's 36 Days of Type Challenge, I wanted to use my established colour palette to create a typeface fitting for my personal brand. I felt that I wasn't showcasing a lot of the colours from my palette and often defaulting to my main Aqua and Grey colours.
I based my general width and height on the font Arial Narrow and modified it to fit my aesthetic. I wanted to achieve a slim, rounded look that incorporated a loop. Because I decided to go for a singular stroke design, I duplicated the character stroke and offset it diagonally backwards to create some depth and dimension. This also allowed me to showcase more than one colour per character. It challenged me to match four different colours from my palette in total, including the background.
