Typography as Shape Making
For this project, I wanted to create my own letters, or typography. Based on Korean letters, I made my own rule that each letter will combine familiar geometric shapes and I will turn them into letters of my own making. Korean is made of consonants and vowels. To create a word at least one consonant and vowel are required. Some consonants and vowels in Korean look similar like ㄱ and ㄲ, and ㅏand ㅑ. I also combined this similarity into my own typography through shapes. Sentences will be expressed through the use of these geometric shapes, which will come from two different sources: my own personal experiences and more well-known or famous sayings.
