Stencil Script - Font Design

This typeface is inspired by graffiti, illustration and traditional template fonts. The aim was to create a stencil font that could be used as a promotional font for the artist. The font is an unusual scripted style, adapted to the art of stencilling. It aims to communicate the beauty and elegance of a script, with the gritty, yet sophisticated edge of a stencil. The entire alphabet (including numbers and characters) was laser cut from a 5mm thick sheet of stainless steel and spray-painted onto a wall at a busy intersection in Johannesburg. The photographs show the entire process, from initial sketches, to the final product. Specimen sheets showcase the font being used as a typeface.
