Experimental type design work
Lady America Type was started in 2012 as an experimental Foundry. During that year I was assisting Prof. Ricardo Esteves Gomes in his Foundry Outras Fontes (www.outrasfontes.com) and learning how to design typefaces and full fonts, experimenting with kerning and more.
Modern Dresses Dingbats is a personal project and my first own font.
How does the Font work?
Each glyph can be used as a single image or it can be mixed (model + dress) into a Fashion Look. The combination occurs automatically, by typing first a number (Model) than a letter (Dress). It creates a overlay of the two glyphs.
It’s very playful!
After installing it in your computer’s Fonts folder, you can use it with applications that have a font-menu, such as Word, Photoshop and so on.
First type a number (0−9) to pick one of the 10 different Models. Than choose one of the 52 Dresses (small letters or capitals) and you get a look.
There are 520 possible combinations and more, if you add colors and textures.
