As personal projects, I often initiate hand drawn typography projects. This work has included the projects here: a neon type composition and a project called 'The Inspirational Type Project' (described more below). The neon composition was taken from handdrawn type then vectorized in Illustrator with details added in Photoshop.
The Inspirational type project was a self initiated project I designed to create a set of desktop images and posters, all around the theme of designing typography heavy images. I was interested in this project as it was a chance to experiment with designing typefaces in more complex ways. It was also an important goal for this project to create finished designs that would work at multiple resolution, and poster sizes.
As a result of this project, I also designed the typeface "Modern Mistral" (the last image above). Which I designed to be a cleaner, more modern (yet still very decorative) version of the font Mistral.
