For this project, I created a typeface with corresponding imagery. Since the project spanned 5 weeks, the focus was on designing one word, rather than a complete alphabet. After designing the word, I paired it with a visual component that reflected the same aesthetic.

Letter sketches and studies.

Using font software, Glyphs, to finesse the design. Version 1 and 2.

Trying to incorporate watercolor paintings was another personal goal for the aesthetic of the animation. In the final, the components would be mostly vectorized with the simple use of two watercolor textures. In regards to concept, iceberg became a symbol for breaking off from the whole. To illustrate this a little girl is floating on an iceberg, in a sea of letters.
