Of a’s is a personal design project. I tend to work with multiplying letters and other shape. I like transforming many of one object into something new through large amounts of said object. In this case, I am working with two-story a’s. There are a few different typefaces used in these exercises. The most prominent is Bodoni. The curves found in the two-story a of Bodoni have unique curves that I feel are very characteristic. I worked with multiples of this a and their opacity to create letters of my own.
This project was awarded a spot in the Society of Typographic Arts 100 for 2018. Link to STA’s winner gallery.
