Solid

Type Design

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, as well as a love-hate relationship with kerning (specifically kerning pairs lol). 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.
