COUNTER // CULTURE

For my photography class I did series of self-portraits in which I attempted to portray culture and counterculture for the past 10 decades. This is the product of that idea…

this is SO COOL oh man

one of my favorite songs + a cool name and BAM a typeface was born :)

Aww heck yes, great choice. love it.
This through a class with Lorrie? Calligraphy>typeface? No idea really because I’m pretty sure there was no class in existence like that in my time.
What software are you using? ALL THE DEETS.


P.S. tell me when portfolio walk is (also didn’t exist in my time)? I like going to that (and crying directly afterward. )

OK so last semester I took calligraphy with lorrie and then i had to submit my best alphabet to kris holmes (idk if you know her but she’s the bamf that designed lucida, apple chancery and a lot of kick ass fonts) so then from there i enrolled in typeface design taught by kris and like i desiged the font based on my calligraphy. I distorted and adapted it a bit by like enlarging the xheight and making the ascenders and descenders a lot shorter and using a 3mm nib to draw my letters to make them nice and thin

so pretty much you start with a core group of letters in the word ‘hamburgevons’ and use your calligraphy and adapted sketches to make a set of letters in illustrator. design them at 1000pt and like measure out your xheight cap height ascenders etc… then you use this program called fontlab to place all the characters in and yeah blam you have a font! its a lottttt of work but i am so proud of it :))))

and yah! i can let you know about the portfolio walk but im a junior now so you’ll have to come next year to see my stuff too!!!!!

Yes, Kris! Met her/seen her speak, not bffs or anything though. But, total BAMF. I’ve been messing around in illustrator with some letters and am at a point i’m pretty happy with these, now to …actually fontify them. Fontlab = def outta budget for me (until this becomes serious serious), but I’ve been looking into a few other options. I also have sursly as a cheerleader kinda for giving this a go (a bit of a type bamf too : http://www.tylerfinck.com/ ). 

Ahhh okay. Well, this year, next year, all of that and everything, any good speakers coming to campus etc. too, I’m always up for.  THANKS!
