Relating to my project on type, the Alphabet Scavenger Hunt, I began to look through and analyze current type faces into 4 categories; Elaborate, Curvy, Simplified, and Geometric. I have found a few examples easily found in Microsoft Word:
As a group working with Kristina Berry and Sarah Geer, we together created our own alphabet using the word we were given in class: Curvy. To do so, we took images of trees that made the shape of each letter in the alphabet and put all of our best images together to finalize our alphabet. We also defined our alphabet as follows:
A curvy typeface can be defined as organic, loose, flowing forms that contain an elegance.
This includes letters similar to an italic or cursive type.
Attached is the finalized PDF of our Alphabet.
