Sketch’d Type

June 19, 2007


Here are some rough sketches of some typography I’m going to script up (vectorize). What is funny right now is that there are only a few forms of typography that really inspire me. A lot of the styles are either way to abstract, thus you loose the readablity on them, or they are just standard styled serif or san serif fonts. With any pitch to a client, I like to throw in differerent styles, but one style i really do like is a mixture of calligraphy and tattoo. Not so much Cholo (909), but a hybrid that feeds off of each other.

    I definitely see some GIANT inspiration there! Am I right? It’s cool to see some hand drawn stuff that you do. That gleaming light emitting from the cloud background has such a cool look to it.
