Drawing a Letter Up In a Tree
Type Design & Installation
GlyphWorld is a free typeface of nine fonts. It’s set in a mythical alternate font-world made of nine landscapes: Forest, Meadow, Flower, Mountain, Airland, Animal Soul, Glacier, Desert, and Wasteland. The project pushes the boundaries of what a typeface can be by using the medium of letterforms to reflect an emotional connection to our environment.
Carmelo is a typeface whose letterforms are drawn to represent a personality I’ve conceived for myself as a mature woman. I thought about the woman I wanted to grow to be: she is strong, sweet, soft, and confident. I used those traits to design this typeface. Carmelo uses organic slime serifs, and extended thinned terminals to embody the elegance of mature women. It combines it with a tall x-height to give her a humanist form: she’s a friendly old lady :-)
