chadTYPE was one of several typefaces I created during the 3-week intensive workshop, ART256 - Digital Typeface Design. Any tools or processes could be used to develop the typefaces, however, the final deliverables required each typeface to be constructed using fontstruct.
The restrictions for this project:
• each character must be limited to a 9x9 grid
• the typeface must include the 26 basic characters (a-z) or (A-Z).
Given a very limited bit-depth to work in, I used the project as an exercise in reduction. From this single exercise, I developed 3 "weights" or variations to add a greater hierarchical range within the family and within each variation, I added 80 characters.
