Syphilis
No, I don't have it
This was a project for my Typography 1 class. The assignment was to choose a word and hand-draw it in formal script, add flourishes, and finally translate it to digital form using Illustrator. I chose the word "syphilis" because without knowing its meaning, it is actually quite pretty sounding. I thought the meaning of the word would be a nice juxtaposition to its visual and euphonic qualities.
