Alphabets and Abstractions
During my semester abroad, I was given the following: Find the balance between legibility and abstraction using an alphabet of my own making. It became an investigation into how much of a letter is needed to be recognized. The booklet is a catalog of abstracted letters that have been stripped to the bare minimum.
I wanted the isolation process of each letter to be consistent. I designed a typeface from a single grid so that I could divide each letter into equal parts. With the grid, I hoped to create a typeface that was characterless too.
