generative art

I came up with a new concoction which is a cross between Arabic Letterism and Generative Art.

Arabic Letterism has been around in the Arab countries for more than three decades now. The works of one its most notable artist, Nja Mahdaoui, have inspired me very much when I saw them, and one of my first abstract art works in 1984 was a Letterism piece in which I tried to copy Mahdaoui's style.

So not too long ago (past few weeks) I answered yet another font/typeface query from a friend. He said he wanted something that will do justice to his brand in one letter or less. I made a rough monochromatic rendering of the glyph by hand, on a 20x30 canvas, using spraypaint and stenciling, took it to their studio, and it was enough to convince them. Score!

Can you name the typeface I suggested to them? It's at the bottom of the page, far left. http://www.whoisntjohngalt.com
