New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Hi, this is the first time I've posted on this site. I will admit, I am not very experienced in the area of type. I am currently going to school for Visual Communications in Oregon, and am taking my second course on typography. I am, however, suprised how much more interested I am in type than I thought I would be!
Our first assignment for this course is to design an upper-case alphabet based on the letters "Dakota". This was a logo for a local store that our instructor got permission to use for this assignment.
I decided that all the letters should be based on strict geometric shapes, with no compound shapes. And this is what I came up with.
The top line is what we were given to work with, followed by the alphabet. The bottom two lines are two sample words to see how they start working together.
I guess I am just looking for some feedback, comments or criticism.
