Custom Typeface, 2012

My passion for typography led me to designing a sans-serif typeface as a self-guided project. It doesn’t have an official name, but I thought “Helverica” was pretty darn clever. No, it won’t win any awards, but the experience taught me a lot of useful information about typography that I wouldn’t have known if I hadn’t ventured here.

When I made this, I kept track of my progress on my tumblr—check it out by surfing the archives!

No, I didn’t make it into a font file, sorry. If you want, however, you can download an EPS file here.
