‘gurl’ Type Specimen

︎ typography, print design , editorial
This brief was in collaboration with the Colophon Foundry and I chose to produce a type specimen of the font ‘Lydia’. To show case this font I decided to base it on slang as ‘Lydia’ is a very gothic, black letter font so I thought the contrast would make it current and trendy. I wanted to showcase how the font can be used in a modern way, can be quite bold and make an impact (the slang phrases), but I also wanted to show the formaility of the font and that it can also be used as body copy (the debate section).

I was lucky enough for my project to be shortlisted by the Colophon Foundry in the production category. “We felt the production values of this project were very high”.
