Modular Typeface

Part of the work to submit on Monday is to complete of digitised type form of the modular typefaces we created in groups. The letters I drew out were ‘g’ and ‘y’ so I chose to draw the letter ‘g’ in Illustrator.

I used the grid that was used to make the type by hand but it was really difficult to get the right shape. Eventually I managed to work out a system to get it looking OK, using the line and paintbrush tool. I think overall, it looks really similar to the original design. The next step is comparing it to the letters the other people in the group have made as obviously it is a group project so ideally all the letters need to be identical.
