Ruby (2008)

For Ruby I was challenged to create a typeface on a specific grid by a colleague, in the same spirit as Mishka and Boussa. The result contains letterforms that are intended to touch and interact in order to create a sense of connection and flow within the words.


Mishka (2008)

Mishka, like Ruby and Boussa, was designed as part of a challenge to use different grids to create different typefaces. For Mishka the letterforms were designed to maintain a strict positioning on the grid at the time of creation, meaning that for each letter to be created I was not allowed to move about the grid at my leisure, I had to make each immediately after the preceding one. This led to some interesting shapes being made due to the irregularities of the grid.
