Sprout is a typeface created within a 3 x 5 grid using only squares and quarter-circles. The typeface is all lowercase and the ascenders and descenders are the only objects that extend to the first and fifth rows respectively. If I were to expand upon this project I would experiment with differently sized grids and adding a set of uppercase characters.
These two animations stemmed from the process of designing each letterform. When moving each set of shapes around from letterform to letterform I wanted to see how the letters might look animated. The first animation shows how the letters grow from a single building block while the second shows how the constraint of the 3 x 5 grid can allow the letters to morph into each other. What follows is a process book showing my rational behind the project.
