Ad Astra

Capstone Project//2018

Ad Astra is a project that questions the history of colonization by imagining a future where humans have colonized other parts of our solar system through more sensitive, collaborative, and respectful means. Inspired by the topics explored in The Saltwater We Know class, and by historical and contemporary stories of Native Americans, I wanted to design a project about the immense responsibility ‘explorers’ take on as they colonize new frontiers. In this future, humans have explored and colonized Venus, the moon, Mars, and Ceres, as well as established outposts throughout the system.

Advanced Type Design: Corbeil

Typeface Design//2016

Continuing the Maximum project, this project called for further development of that typeface. I decided, though, to start fresh and work on a Didot-inspired typeface that was more square while maintaining the serif and stroke contrast. The font is called Corbeil after the town near which Fermin Didot was born.
