I was interested in typeface design for a long time, especially, it's can be seen one part of logotype. So, in the AP2, I tried to design typeface to know the whole process.
1. Sketch the ideas on the paper, define the personality of the typeface that you want to creat. The inspiration of typeface that I created is from petals.
2. Scan the sketch into the Illustrator and make them carefully using pen tool.
3. Use photoshop to add more effects.
I also tried to creat some Chinese characters, although they are totally different, the process is the same.
Through the comparison, I found because Chinese characters have more strokes and radicals, more attention should be paid on the structure.
