Designing our own font was a progression of improvement. At first, we studied the form of the letter B and studied why it is shaped the way it is. We then explored more on the letter B by rendering other forms. I incorporated some of the Gestalt principles of design to draw my letter B’s. After a class of critique, I chose the cube font to work with, since its 3-dimensional form is different from the other fonts that I designed. By practicing more with its rules and regulation, I rendered a word and used other letters. Designing the alphabet and the numbers with my cube font took a lot more time. I kept the letters look the same as much possible by using a grid.The font also requires the letters to be in isometric view, in which made me draw more guidelines on top of the grid. Using Adobe Illustrator to create a graphic file became much more effortless. With the pen tool, I traced over the scanned photo of my original design. The final production was satisfying. Finishing the whole alphabet with my own font helped me create my Rubik’s Cube event poster.
