type holocaust
0

hi guys,

i m a student from SCAD and i m doing a project that require to create a new type. the hard part is that the inspiration has to come from the cemetry. i started from doing a "rubbing" on the engraved text of one the tomb stone and the process continue on...

Cheers,
Ray.

good start...it seems like youve reach the extremum of abstraction. Now try to tone it down and gets some legibility going. Also I find it easier to do hamburgefonstiv rather than working on all at once. Once I get a unified system for the "ham.." the rest will feel as a cohesive family.

hi there, the holocaust is a preface type and is not ment for body copy.in terms of legibility, i m not too worried about it as the holocaust is an abstraction type. but i appreciate your comments though.
tks and cheers.
