    A second year University project using shape as a catalyst to design a set of typefaces based around their form in order to explore the possibilities of type within them. The opposite connotations of a circle and triangle create a refreshing composition showcasing how type can differ in style when linked with contrasting forms of shape. The objective of the project was to play around and develop skills within the realm of typography.

Cirque Du Angle - Typeface Set Project
 
A second year University project using shape as a catalyst to design a set of typefaces based around their form in order to explore the possibilities of type within them. The opposite connotations of a circle and triangle create a refreshing composition showcasing how type can differ in style when linked with contrasting forms of shape.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Goal: to play around and develop skills within the realm of typography and explore what makes a typeface unique.

Outcome: visually pleasing and competently produced, but lacked depth to develop the fonts and use in a more applicable way, due to the fact I had so little to respond to as a brief, suffocating my ability to develop and build.
 
Moving Forward: when required to write another independent project brief, I must ensure that I consider a subject matter that will enable a sustainable subject brief which will allow and accommodate exploration, experimentation and realisation, ensuring the design is driven by the content.
 
Personal Rating: 7.5/10, for my first typographical project I am satisfied with the final outcome; it is clean, unique, and holds depth in the reasoning behind the two typefaces. I am a very meticulous worker, and that's becoming more apparent as time goes by and I begin to develop more, this means a project of this nature slotted in smoothly with my characteristics, in doing so making it an enjoyable process. It was time consuming, yet rewarding, as I didn't get distracted along the way as I knew exactly what i needed to do, it was just a matter of churning it out. Although, looking back, I should have experimented with the application of the fonts and what they could have been used for. All in all, a successful project and lots of positives to be taken forward.
