Capitol Metro

Type Design (26 Glyphs, Monospace)

Digital Poster (16” x 21”)
I was tasked with designing a custom typeface and a collateral promoting awareness for Austin City Metro's "Project Connect" campaign, which is reimagining how the city of Austin will approach public transportation in the future.

The only 2 tools I could use in the creation of my custom typeface was a handheld hole punch and a single 4" square of paper. The result is 'Connect' a monospaced font inspired by the maps of train systems. The colors of the proposed train lines were used throughout the work.
