Typography // Self

The Oxhead Project

The Oxhead

A self initiated project to help myself better understand and create interesting typography and lettering. I figured the best way to understand something, especially lettering, is to copy it, over and over and over until you’re completely sick of it. After nearly 365 different versions, I feel like I know what defines the letter a. How it looks and feels, with and without flourishes, at its most minimal, at its most awkward, thickest, thinnest, etc.

While I didn’t manage to load all 365 daily that year, I got pretty close! Some of my favorites are here. Or you can visit the site to see all of the different explorations. Many would make a great basis for a logo or monogram.
