PERSONAL PROJECT: BASTARD
A newfound fascination with type design and the history of design led me to begin the process of creating my own typeface, which is still a work in progress. The basic forms of Bastard are derived from a French Gothic typeface, Batarde or Bastarda, a blackletter script. The pixelated appearance shows a melding of history with contemporary design. This combination of the old with the new, as well as the name of the original blackletter script, inspired the name Bastard.
