Iteration One

Project: This one kills two birds with one stone. As part of my 101 Things in 1001 Days, I am supposed to design three new fonts. Additionally, I need it for a custom MTB frame I’m working on. More on that in a bit. The first iteration — call it a rough rough draft — of the letterforms is shown below…

The original font is not available — it’s something that the effects department put together as a vector file and then would manually piece together the letters to form the panels seen on the sides of the Vipers. I’ve been attempting to track it down, and while doing so, have started noodling with a new version of it in Illustrator. I’ll probably turn this sucker into a free font.

As you can see, some of the letterforms are unfinished, and some of them need some work. Lots of work. As I make more changes, I’ll update this series.
