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.

Upper Case




Sketching, Photoshop, Illustrator, WordPress

Lower Case

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.
