"The world is full of old lettering material that can be used as inspiration for new typefaces."
Neue Soul Typeface
Neue Soul is a humanist typeface face designed to showcase the calligraphic typography of Singapore. This humanist typeface designed with the elements of the Hindu, Arabic and Chinese Calligraphy strokes. As a type designer, I aimed to create a typeface that represented Singapore’s culture by capturing the unique calligraphic elements. A design solution is formed when modern meets heritage - Acrylic is used as a medium for the Book Cover as opposed to paper or wood. There are two fonts of this typeface. Neue Soul and Neue Soul Light.
Tile Patterns as Motif
For the poster design, I have designed a Three-Dimensional Pattern by reducing the details of the Tile Patterns from Singapore's heritage.
Neue Soul is designed on Adobe Illustrator and Fontlab
This project is done for Typography III Module, 2017
