The proposed project was undertaken under the guidance of Prof. Mahendra Patel. A Type Design Development in the Devanagari script based on the famous historical type design ‘Univers’ designed in 1957 by Adrian Frutiger.
This project offered me a great scope for learning mainly the details that undergo in making a typeface.
Time was a big deceiving factor. In the beginning it seemed sufficient enough to achieve the set target but I soon realized the complexity and numerous possibilities towards refinement, which just seemed endless.
I chalked out a working system which could help me understand my objectives as well as give me key directions to carry out the tasks on hand.
Most of the type designs are done for a specific use or project, this one was planned to create digitally outlined fonts with family of weights for general use. I completed the normal in weight and will now be taking it forward to build it for other weights.
