Hello I’m starting to design a new type, but I’m not sure if I have seen something alike. Does anyone know of type that looks similar or even the same??? Thanks
Your new type consists of / is based on pretty simple, geometric shapes, so I am pretty sure that there are similar ones out there, even if I can actually name none of them right now.. But I am going to start seeking some now..
Reminds me of Gothic Gothic by Grieshaber. Of course, the proportions are completely diﬀerent.
Do it anyway, Alex—you can make enough creative, original decisions with it to make it your own.
Thanks Scott… I really liked this type, but wasn’t really sure if it was worth doing something that maybe wasn’t so original. I will give it a try and see what comes out of it. Anyway, I thank you all for the suport
I like the look of the drawings you posted; though on the other hand David is right that there are scads of geometric/grid faces out there. Maybe you could distinguish your face by doing a clean<—>rough/distressed axis, instead of the usual light<—>bold or condensed<—>extended axes. I think part of what can make these geometric faces all feel the same is that they often have razor-clean lines and angles, which comes across as sterile and soulless half the time, at least to me. If you had a clean, idealized version, but also versions that had the warmer look of your hand drawings, I’d want a copy.
