Type Design / A growing collection of typefaces I've designed and will continue to work on. All my typefaces start with a question or set of contraints for me to work in. Can you mesh together high contrast and monoline script? How would a CNC bit influence the design of a modern wood type? What's the effect of no horizontals on a condensed serif? All the sample text to the below is editable. Click on any text and test the typeface out for yourself.

Kaweah / A sharp, condensed, serif typeface with wide language support and strong historical roots. The original inspiration for this typeface comes from text in the museum collection of Kings Canyon National Park. I worked through the basic letters and continued to expand and tweak the letter shapes as the typeface expanded out to the current set of glyphs.

Kaweah Inspiration

Risto / Neon sign inspired script that grew out of the desire to smash together a monoline and a high contrast in the same typeface. Currently only consists of lowercase. Uses OpenType features to swap glyphs so letters always flow into one another.
