Typography is hard

Typography has always interested me. Unfortunately, it’s not really my strongest skill. But I’ve been trying to change that. So I sat down and decided to make a font. Once I came up with the initial concept sketches I set up a grid system to work off of. In addition, I set two rules in place to aid my design process:

1. Every letter must be composed of a single, unbroken line.
2. All areas must be exactly 2 lines thick.

The result of this is a chunky geometric sans-serif font with unique curves and linear forms. I call it Old Sport. Check it out!
