  • MonkWerks, Custom Font.
    A monastic looking triple-strike (three colour) font for an on-line word game.
  • This very complex font of initial caps was designed for  game developer, Jason Rubin the an on-line word game, called MonWerks.  The premise of the game was that players are scribes in a medieaval monastary. You gain points by quickly unscrambling letters to find words. The Initial letter had to look like a is came straight out of an ancient illuminated manuscript, but for programming reasons, it had to be an actual letter.

    Working closely with Jason and his team of designed and programmers, I designed this font to suggest actual illuminated manuscripts while at the same time matching the style of the game's interface.
