Karel Martens Inspired Typeface



Mar 2019
ROLE: Type Designer
PROGRAM: Illustrator & After Effects


THE BRIEF: 
Research type designers and pick one that inpsires you. Create a typeface inspired by them.


THE EXECUTION:
I created a typeface to capture the spirit of designer Karel Marten’s experimental print series using the letterpress to create repetitive geometric shapes and static forms. Similar to Marten’s prints, I layered simple shapes to create the letter forms. I also chose a CMYK color palette to represent the color range of printing my typeface.

ROLE: Graphic Designer, Editorial Designer, & Copywriter
PROGRAM: Illustrator & InDesign


THE BRIEF:
Based on the type designer you hvae chosen for your typeface, write an essay about them and their process. Then design a zine for your essay and your typeface. 

THE EXECUTION:
I created about Karel Martens’ career and philosophy. I incorporated simple graphic shapes printed on acetate to layer on top of my text. The layering present in my typeface mirrors Karel’s letterpress print technique.
