Control Letters

Limited Font, 

February 2021



The Goal:

Design the first 15 letters of a typeface based on tool technique.

The Solution:

Beginning with H, O, D, n, o, and a, Maddie experimented with several tools using different style strokes. She landed on an upright sans serif style using a flat brush and ink. Refining her letters, she made them more geometric.

Challenges Faced:

Challenges arose in the beginning of the process trying to make a decision on a visual direction to go in. It needed to be visually pleasing, but also relatively simple to practice working in Glyphs and constructing letters from others.


15 letters, digitized and exported as a working font.
This project has been one of Maddie’s favorites because it informed her of a potential career path that she may enjoy.
