We would have to do four of these every week, to prepare us for the epic final. After choosing our best “evolutions” of type, we had to narrow it down to one and use it to sell an appropriately related product. The type I ended up choosing was very square and boxy, and so I named the font “proxy” and packaged home decorating things, like paint swatches, pillows, etc. I named the product line “Pixel Paints.” It’s not one of my portfolio pieces, but I had fun making the different letters and packaging something different.

Most of these Found Type Friday images are from an antique store, taken originally for a typography class. We had to find old type that wasn’t used anymore for anything and make three variations of it. I will post some examples tomorrow for Scanturday.
