Every graphic designer struggles with choosing the right typeface for their projects. But if you can’t find what you need, how do you complete your vision? For many, the solution is to create a unique set of fonts, something that no one has dreamed up before.
This is what we regularly challenge our students with at Shillington. We set them the task of crafting one or more fonts, taking into account weights, styles, condensations, widths, slants and everything they might need to create a bespoke typeface that fits a specific brief.
For a little inspiration, we’ve sifted through a wealth of recent work to bring you 12 great typefaces created by our graphic design students. See what you think!
