klaimco,

'Sidney Watters'

^letters for our boy...

i've been sketching & working on this for a little while. i really dove in & did a bunch of research & thinking on what happens to two lines when they meet? upon my thoughts i didn't want to have any boxed corners. i really wanted the letters to have fun curves & swoops. as friends we value what SI's artwork is & wanted these letters to directly reflect just that: its very technical & classic yet its done in a contemporary way & time.

sincerely,

  2. good work Bens, really legit...getting Douglas Higgins with it....i wonder if the underline is cramp'in the letter's style a little...let them breath? ... just thinking out loud.

    did you vector the whole typeface? Put that in circulation.... I'll type with it.

    dude i totally agree. i added the underline as an afterthought. i was just about to hit save/done & then i started underlining/crampin'. man i wish their was an easy way to typeset fonts. i bet someday someone will fill that void...

  4. that good gushy-gushy.. OOOOHHHHH!!!

    did you draw each of these letters? is it based on a font? pretty impressive, benjerman. i like the subtle variations of the 2 T's next to each other.

    haaaaaaanh!

  5. B,
    I'm pretty sure there's a program that takes hand-drawn fonts and turns them into digi fonts.
    Look it up.

  6. dee steez,

    thanks for the support. yeah i think i had the 'tt's' doing the same thing but it looked really off i went back & forth on that choice. but i like that they are different & crossing one another.

    yeah i usually start by sketching the letters out one by one (on paper). & think about the relationship of letters next to one another. then i research a bunch of fonts (sometimes i do that first). then i sometimes scan in certain sketches to get certain curves that i can't just freestyle with the mouse. then i usually bring everything together. its a really fun process.

    sometimes i just dive right into using the computer.

    ^process in a nutshell.

    dude i can't wait to see your site. fire over those shirt designs!

    SB, yeah i have a couple programs & they are all pretty annoying. a simple/user friendly one would be so dope. i bet someone is working on that program right about....NOW!

    sincerely,
    _b
