My Font Experiment

Kris SansSo, If you don’t know this about me, I really enjoy typography. So with that being said, I wanted to make a simple font, with a straight line and a circle. Thats it. Rules were that I could rotate the line any degree however I could only crop the line and circle at 90 degree angles, the only rule i bent was to slightly increase the x height of the lowercase o, apparently your eye plays tricks on you if you don’t. So here is my complete lowercase set for what I am calling Kris Sans. Simple like my name, no frills and my first attempt at creating a font. Surprisingly, this took a lot longer than I thought it would. I can see how people get lost in the little details of a letter on the micro level.

Social Networking for Designers

I recently joined two new social networks, both related to design. I have been a member for a little bit now, however, until now I haven’t posted any projects. I am going to do a little comparison. I am posting the same work on both sites, and I will then track my progress on both. The site I get better use out of I will use. So check out my profile at Design:Related profile or my profile at Behance Network or both.

Do I really need another two social networking site to update? Sure, why not (although I have to work on the social part). So far, Behance seems to give me more options on how I present my material, however posting my portfolio on Design:Related was quick and easy. As I use it I’m sure my pro’s and con’s list will grow. For a while, I was unsure what projects to highlight. Currently my thoughts are to post design that I have had free reign to experiment with. Some are working out techniques, other’s are works that bands have used for promotion. I will be adding personal projects occasionally to my portfolios as I get inspired and I will post links here.
