  • PROJECT: Funky Nova
    A font-making project inspired by a designer
  • For our midterm project in FA171.4 Digital Design Procedures, we were assigned to create a typeface inspired by a designer of our choice. It need not be an artist per se – it can be a fashion designer, a furniture designer, a graphic designer, etc. The font must show the personality, design style and design philosophy of the chosen designer. 

    For this project, I decided to come up with a font inspired by Victoria Topping ! :) 
     
    I have always admired her amazing works and I wanted to create a typeface for someone who has inspired me to make more of what I want to do. ♥ I love how she goes crazy with her works! Check out her stuff here! :)
     
    We had to create a font, complete with the uppercase, lowercase, numbers and punctuations. Also, we had to apply the actual font. Although it took me most of the weekend, working all day (with a little Tiny Tower break and Facebook-Twitter-Tumblr interference) until around 3 in the morning, I have to say that I feel accomplished with creating this typeface! :)
     
    Have a look at the inspiration, the process, the resulting typeface and the application! :)

    An unexpected surprise
  • A week after publishing this project on my Behance account, I was surprised that Victoria Topping herself has seen my work inspired by her artworks. It was amazing to be recognized for what I love doing, especially something I worked so hard for.
