Lathe Typeface

Brief

I set myself this personal project with the goal of designing a fresh new typeface that would look modern and clean.

Idea

At an early stage in the process I found the brief evolving as I decided not create a typeface from scratch, but instead to add a touch of personality to an existing typeface, enhancing its appearance. I chose Futura as my base typeface for its clean and modern characteristics that could work well in a 3D environment, I experimented with various extrusions and settled on a twisted and stretched extrusion with sharp lines and a clean modern look. Materials were later explored and applied to the characters to see how the typeface would look with different materials affecting it’s look and feel.
