My inspiration for this typeface originated when I was walking around the Nelson museum looking at early Mayan pottery. I found the hieroglyphics to be very interesting in their shape and use of line. I thought this would make a great font. I have chosen to work with the earlier style of Mayan hieroglyphics instead of the later style which is more decorative. I am still continuing to work on this font so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Megan
That’s kind of cool! A good start. My ﬁrst thought is, maybe you need to have less diﬀerentiation between the cartouches (sp?) than you have now.
I think you could have less diferentiation as well, but not tho the point where it loses its playfulness. i ‘d like to see more glyphs out of their box that some have.
