I’m trying to create a “font” which I can easily tweak the looks using programming.
Using rectangles as building blocks. The letters/glyphs will be easy to draw with codes. There are a few ideas I’m trying to explore:
- Inaccurate drawing: I find normal fonts which reproduce the result for each letter is predictable and rigid. If the same letter is drawn a little bit differently every time. The result may look more organic.
- Animation: ‘A’ can transform to ‘B’ is quite magical
- Physics Engine: Letters constructed with physical features using Box2D will give text new meanings. Make ‘A’ fall apart and become bouncing rectangles. Make ‘A’ collide into ‘B’ or ‘PENIS’ messes up ‘VAGINA’
- Generative letters: Vines and flowers form words.
- 3D words
Here’s day 1’s progress.
Here’s an example of lousy/unfaithful drawing
