Design a 27th letter (in both upper and lower case) that seamlessly integrates into an existing typeface both visually and conceptually.


Instructions

Typeface Selection

Select a standard serif or sans serif typeface for this project. No novelty typefaces, please. Feel free to dig through Google’s font library for source material.

Craft

Zoom-in for technical accuracy. Your goal is to have clean, smooth vector lines that look refined and professional. You may use whatever tools you prefer, but please stay within Adobe Illustrator.


Presentation

Frame your work inside an 8.5" x 11" document in Adobe Illustrator. Please showcase the upper and lowercase letters at the top of the document, highlighting their typographic measurements where applicable. At the bottom, please display the entirety of the typeface with your 27th letter blended into the mix. B&W only, please.


Submission

When you are finished, please export a high-resolution .pdf and name it according to the file-naming specifications listed on the Policies page. Submit the .pdf to the “Turn in Work” folder.
