Anarch

Background.

I designed and developed the Anarch typeface based on some shadows on a wall while sitting at the doctor’s office. I have always found lines and shapes in the shadows to be so pleasing to my eye. I often find myself seeing the shape and staring in wonder at the organic way it was formed.

Scope.

I was tasked with creating an original typeface design based on extraction from found imagery, so I went to work by looking through my sketchbook and seeing the shape that would inspire the serif’s end for each letter. That was the somewhat easy part; next came a great deal of research on typography, graphic design, and global visual culture.

Result.

I produced sketch after sketch until the final letters for “A,” “R,” “Q,” and “S” were developed. These letters inform the shapes and lines used throughout the entire alphabet, and thus, Anarch was born.
