Surveyor: A Mapmaker’s Letter.

Engraved maps use a characteristic form of lettering that’s unmistakable as anything else. We celebrate this style with Surveyor, a monumental family of typefaces designed for print and screen, and for sizes large and small.

The style of lettering that inspired Surveyor is an invention of the early nineteenth century, born of the material properties of copperplate engraving and the informational needs of cartography.

where I am in my life right now #1


Decided to start keeping a record of my progress artistically and just in life I guess. Right now I am overwhelmed by work I’m not really feeling for my communications design major classes.

Working on a side project right now which will be the last of our quarterly videos. Have high hopes for it, I’ve started working out every other day for my acting role.

Have kinda reached a plateau with my calligraphic endeavors since there’s only so much I can do with brush pens. Though recently I’ve started trying to create my own oriental-looking western character style and might make that into a font over the summer since I’m low on money. My brush pens have also been running out of ink so I will need to get new ones soon. Also considering getting a new tool so I can do other stuff too!

whats your favorite focal length?
