Sketches for a typeface design

This image shows an example of my working process towards developing a new typeface design from a calligraphic foundation, and beginning to build up a design space for the letterform design. I begin with writing to capture unique qualities that come up in my calligraphic writing. After the calligraphic stage, I look for traits and forms that can be modelled into typographic forms.
