Gigerian Anatomy Typeface Design
This project was about experimentation of letter forms, structure & conceptual type style design. The goal was to create our own typeface based on the identity of a famous person of our choosing. The final outcome had to convey an understanding of the person’s characteristics & their significant achievements. The design should be meaningful, conceptually aesthetic, & function appropriately as alphabets. The person I choose to design my typeface after was famed artist H.R. Giger, creator of the iconic creature, “Alien.”
inspiration & Ideation
I wanted to convey the nightmarish & obsessive nature that H.R Giger had with combining anatomy with mechanical elements. By mixing organic shapes with elongated clean lines & irregular proportions I was able to successfully create a type that encompassed Giger’s personality.
