This typeface was inspired by aspects of my handwriting. I came up with the name “Simplified Ciari” from one of my middle names. I imagine this typeface being used in video games or 80’s themed pixel posters.
Bucket was inspired by typefaces found things such as retro signs, wallets, metal cut outs and ceramic mugs. These combined insparations makes a very quirky design that could be a very versatile display typeface. I named my typeface Bucket because the large counters feel like they could hold a lot of value, like a bucket.
Chicano was inspired by my love for everything West Coast, specifically with the Chicano culture. I was influenced by Chicano style tattoos which carries a ton of qualities from the blackletter typeface. Chicano takes just some of my favorite qualities of blackletter without a lot of the elaborate line work.
Schwester was first inspired by the weight of the edges of the capital letter “O”. The combination of slanted type, hand drawn drop caps, and my love of the band QUEEN, helped to push the typeface into existence. For the typeface’s name Schwester, it is the German word for sister. This name stuck out to me much like my sibling’s use of the word to get my attention. My Germanic Nickname name seemed to fit perfectly. Since both the typeface and the name both are comfortable, sophisticated yet personal. Although pixelated, my goal is to someday finalize it so the edges are more curved and smooth.
Songbird is a pixelated font inspired by simplified blackletter. It is reminiscent of the medieval time period, mixed with modern technology. Songbird was designed to be a display font and could be used in video games, on merchandise such as graphic tees, or for branding.
This typeface was inspired by 1920’s classic analog Art Deco style. This typeface is created with long sharp lines that have a rounded outside edge. With these thick and thin lines it makes for a dramtic graphic punch. Someways this typeface could be used include titles, and numbers on buildings or mailboxes.
TimeStamp was inspired by technological typefaces found on items such as digital clocks, refrigerators, and electronic toothbrushes. In combination of original blocky and geometric letterforms with curvy and playful ones, TimeStamp came to fruition after editing the stiff structures of geometric letters with curvatures found in the whimsical forms.
