Description
OPPORTUNITY
Design an original typeface.

SOLUTION
My love of the coast and beautiful serifs were my inspiration for my typeface. After traveling to Charleston, SC a few weeks prior to being assigned this project, I was inspired by the Cooper River Bridge. Since I am so attracted to the bridge and its surroundings, I decided I would make a typeface that could be used in areas associated with the bridge, particularly in the Charleston City Marina. I also took inspiration from the existing typeface, Didot. I admired the beautiful shift in weight throughout the letterforms, so I applied that to my own letterforms.

    SOLUTION
    The inspiration for the typeface came from the coast of Charleston, South Carolina and the beautiful, weight-shifting serifs of the existing typeface, Didot. The structure of each letterform is based on the Cooper River Bridge in Charleston. This typeface would be used in areas associated with the bridge, particularly in the Charleston City Marina and surrounding areas.
