I created this experimental typeface during the Fall of 2017. The methodology behind it came from design exercises that I completed daily during the summer of 2017. I started to picture a letter as something that I could create a whole design piece with. By using the letter itself with a low opacity and repeated many times, I give depth to each letter that pushes beyond a flat design.
I named the piece “Lights”. It is named so because of said depth that is added to the letters and the multilayered and changing transparencies that are created with the multiplying effect.
Lights was published in the “unpublished” section of Communication Arts 2018 and I won an award for the piece (pictures of award will be taken when it is received).
