A year ago I created this text face, and I have learned a lot from it. To begin with, reference and research is important. I made the whole design blind, which hindered it's progress in how the forms are shaped, but helped me understand, through failure, to look at the relationships between letters.
There are many other mistakes I made. However, it did not hinder me. I learned a lot from this first text face and continue to work on it, flushing out those relationships, so I can eventually get it right and then make another one.
