Howdy. My name is Winston Scully, I'm new here. Looking forward to more discussions with all you fine people.
I've been doing lettering for about 3 years, and been a graphic designer for about 4. I created my first typeface
this year and released it back in September. My website
has some of my recent work.
I've been chasing a few different ideas as of late, but Lies has risen from the group and taken a lot of my time.
Lies is a geometric display typeface based on a piece of graffiti that I'm very fond of in my hometown, Baton Rouge. It's not your normal graffiti, it's got decent typographical structure and it's just really fat. I think that's what has drawn my eye to it all these years. Anyhow, when I started making fonts I decided that I wanted to create something based on this piece of graffiti that aptly says "LIES" in big white letters across an abandoned pier on the Mississippi River.
This typeface is mostly intended for exploration into the type design world for me personally, but I'd really love to get some technical feedback, as well as some overall feedback on the concept. Is this interesting to you? Would you use it? I'm not quite sure what it's applications are, and I don't really have any particular set of goals besides learning the ins and outs of Glyphs. So please, honest thoughts welcome and anything you have to offer.
