Design a typeface from scratch based on the personality of a faculty at Newhouse School of Public Communications.
My muse was Heather Speach, administrative assistant to the dean. Through a zoom interview, I learn many things about her, and what stood out to me was her love of water and her calmness. Inspired by her love of water, I decided to design a script typeface as my first ever typeface.
Flow Script as a whole naturally alludes to the movement of water, connecting letter to letter as it flows along and embracing the waviness of water in small details, like the cross stroke on the t. But because not all letters have such stroke, some glyphs feature an extra swash to compensate, including the C, E, G, H, K, U, V, W, and Y.
