Insight Report

This project gave me the opportunity to choose from a selection of phrases and create a working typeface.

During this project, I developed a typeface based on the phrase “The Games of Murderers”. I combined the words Game and Murder to create a typeface based on human anatomy to represent a game. I looked at the assortment of human bones coming together like a puzzle to create a skeleton which also works as a representation of murder.

While developing this project, I experimented with stipple pens as a way to detail the typeface. This lead me to use a similar aesthetic when digitising the final typeface.
