Letter Design

Our as­sig­n­ment was to cre­a­te so­mething with a let­ter from our ini­ti­als in Illustrator. There had to be at le­ast 5 dif­fe­rent ty­pe­fa­ces used and on­ly one co­lor. I de­ci­ded on the let­ter L sin­ce it see­med the most flex­i­ble let­ter.

Over Spring Break I saw a mo­vie on YouTube sho­wing a hex­a­pod ro­bot mo­deled af­ter an ant (See he­re: A-​Pod). Though I mig­ht ma­ke a mo­del of that. It tur­ned out to be a bit mo­re dif­fi­cult to ma­ke.

Letter Scorpion

It en­ded up being mo­re of a ro­bot scor­pi­on thing. I wish I could’ve had mo­re con­t­rol over the out­li­nes to gi­ve it a bet­ter sen­se of depth.

Now I ha­ve to fi­nish my per­so­nal flag…

  • That is soooo cool!  Those are ALL L’s?!  What are the ty­pe fa­ces?

    • I couldn’t tell you all of the on­es I used be­cau­se I con­ver­ted them all to cur­ves, but there’s at le­ast fi­ve dif­fe­rent on­es in the­re.

  • Sweet, I hadn’t seen this one! I think your sen­se of depth is pret­ty good. Did you dis­tort the ls that form his front pin­cers?
