New Heretic

Typeface Design 


We were tasked with two type design assignments. The creation of a pixel typeface, and a revival typeface of one of the first ever printed typefaces of our choosing (mine was Baskerville). 

My Baskerville Revival, entitled New Heretic, an homage to John Baskerville’s herestic past in his printing of the Bible, took a much longer stretch of time in the adaptation and personalization of what would be our own spin on the current font. 

Below is a typeface specimen poster, my final proof, and process.
