Incipio Slab

Typeface Design//2017

It’s named “Incipio” after the word “incipit,” which is the beginning of a larger work. Being my first serious exploration of type design, this title seemed appropriate.

Farari Typeface

Typeface Design//2016

Back in 2010, I was walking through the Fremont neighborhood in Seattle which is full of small businesses and boutiques. One such business was a small mechanics shop with a hand-painted sign that was reminiscent of the Ferrari logotype’s blocky letters.

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.
