Alphabet

An artistic exercise for myself which I think every designer does at least once in their life — create a custom alphabet. To keep a coherent style throughout, I gave myself 3 guidelines:

  1. Each letter has to represent a word that starts with the same letter.
  2. I can only use the solid colors cyan, magenta and yellow.
  3. It has to fit inside a square.

Referencing the typeface Avenir Next, I created 26 letters using the following words:

  • Nuance
  • Oblong
  • Pillar
  • Queue
  • Rivet
  • Simple
  • Titan
  • Unusual
  • Vine
  • Woven
  • Xerox
  • Yolk
  • Zigzag
  • Abstract
  • Blitz
  • Contour
  • Dissolve
  • Extrude
  • Fold
  • Gooey
  • Hover
  • Illusion
  • Joinery
  • Kinetic
  • Layers
  • Monster
