I made a font! type branding clean hackweek lettering glyph minimal modern modular typography pattern custom font typeface

For my Investment Week project, I decided to create a usable font out of a pattern we've used on a few things recently. I've wanted to give FontLab a test drive for years, so this was a great chance to do it.

It's called "Sploot".

The type is created out of square glyphs which made kerning pretty easy. It was still quite the challenge but I'm happy with the result. Most of the letters only vaguely represent their counterparts so I'd like to create another version that's a little closer to legible.
