Dean Hayden A letter a day by Dean Hayden

I am creating a letter a day from scratch for the next 26 days. This is to help me better understand letter forms and to improve my craft

26 Shots


The letter "Z"

August 24, 2015

Last one, curves and angles of the serifs look a little off. Learnt a lot and have a new appreciation of type designers. Had a fun 26 days!

The letter "y"

August 24, 2015

Something rounded and slanted.

The letter "X"

August 24, 2015

X marks the spot! Just a plain but rather heavy serif. Behind uploading this week, more to come today

The letter "W"

August 20, 2015

Had fun with this one. Sort of a blackletter serif cross, not entirely sure how to classify this.

The letter "V"

August 19, 2015

Couldn't be anything else other than a classic serif.

The letter "U"

August 19, 2015

Garamond inspired "U".

The letter "t"

August 17, 2015

Lowercase, serif(ish). The serif feels a bit too heavy but am happy with the bottom; looks like a more natural curve.

The letter "S"

August 16, 2015

Knew that this one would be a challenge. Think the top and bottom of some curves need to be flattened.
