I started at the Cooper Union in the Post-Graduate Typeface Design Program in the Fall of 2010 and began my original typeface design in January of 2011. The following are some photos of my design process for this project.
Early sketches exploring translation and expansion stroke models
Explorations for the italics
Looking into adding additional weights
I was lucky enough to present my work to Johnathan Hoefler of Hoefler & Frere-Jones and master type designer Matthew Carter.
Below is the current state of my design, as I presented it this week. I will be continuing development for my Cooper Type final.
