Billy (2014)

Billy began life as part of my Poster Poster Club response to the word ‘Threat’. The letterforms take inspiration from the possible glint that can occur on the circular base of bullets (the rim and the primer).

While on the poster it can be seen that I retained the inner circle relating to the primer, I have since removed this element in order to refine the letterforms and create simpler shapes.

The name of the typeface refers to gunman Billy the Kid.
