Solid's structure was inspired by two of the basic geometric forms we see in everyday life—the rectangle and circle—and it received its name because of its thick and heavy appearance. This school project gave me a newfound respect for type design and the meticulous process that goes into making glyphs. Solid is my first attempt at designing a typeface, but I hope to use the skills I've learned toward additional typefaces in the future. Below you'll see more detailed info and several digitally illustrated type specimens for Solid.
I’m a design student originally from Los Angeles, but currently living in the Bay Area. As a young kid, I was always interested in art and illustration, but as I got older the concepts of science and technology also intrigued me. After several years of engineering courses, I decided to follow my true passion and become a designer.
Since then, I’ve continually focused on finding clean and concise solutions for complex design problems, while pursuing a Web & New Media degree at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. You could say I found the right balance bewteen art and technology, because I enjoy learning about the latest web design trends and discovering ways to create meaningful interactive experiences.
Nowadays, you can find me either binge-watching the latest Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Originals , walking my two lazy pugs , or looking for the next best travel destination .
