Return to the workbench

Exploring something new—drawing and process wise. Attempting to finally track my time when working on some fonts. I roughed through 23 characters in 2.5 hours.

Preview of Gait featuring an alternate “R” and possibly one of the first looks at the ampersand.

Experiments with the “f” and “t”

How to draw a saber-toothed “3”:

  • Rotate the “2” and cut it half
  • Paste in the bottom half of the “S”
  • Combine them

Realizing that I never posted this dented “n”

Working with Sean O’Connor on font production/character set expansion of a custom font.

I promise I didn’t leave the ampersand like this.

Gaight • Future Fonts Application


For posterity, here is the rejected application submitted to Future Fonts for Gaight—later renamed Gait. For a little more information, view this Twitter thread which was shared later in August.

Very much an accident, but there is something really interesting happening here just waiting to be uncovered.

Ah yes, the graceful beginnings of drawing an S.
