My goal for this project was to create a typeface made out of precious stones & crystals. I created all these letter forms through vector illustration, using layers of subtle gradients and tones to create the look of a dimensional stone. Full of interesting details, sharp lines, & bright colors, this typeface is definitely statement making. Each letter form represents a corresponding stone- for example, G represents Garnet, J represents Jade, etc. This gave the typeface another layer of dimensionality, and could be a potential educational tool if the viewer was so inclined to learn about each stone.
This project was definitely a labor of love for me, and I think it shows in the small details.
