Obsidium

• piece of text typeset by the original script  Hollar

What makes me a lot proud is definitely the font Obsidium. It was a demanding project that our group of four people spent almost two months on. My part was to digitalize the font from drawings we received as a part of the assignment. I also converted the font into curves. Besides that I had to make sure that the font had perfect spacing, kerning and balance in order to make the font elligible and suitable for long texts. The result is 142 symbols suitable for typesetting in the Czech and Slovak language. The project also includes typographic poster, postcard, beatiful swatch and a website www.interpretype.gd1.cz.
