I should signal my apologies in advance: 1 - I don't really know how to use Illustrator, so I tried my best to do the design I wanted, but I think I would've done a better job if I was more skillful...
2 - I wish I had more time. Typography is something I am very interested in and honestly, I wish I can have a whole week to focus on this, but let me make it clear (and to remind myself I said this publicly) that I intend to revisit this one day.
So, These are the six fonts I picked out for my name. As my name is quite short and only has 5 letters, with my first name featuring only three, I need to play upon the repetition of the "i" and "c"s, and how it contrast with "V". I also am a big fan of more minimalist design, so I like subtle varieties that can be at once playful and balanced.
Here are the serif fonts:
I like how the "i" serifs look in this font.
More bold, more playful, but still well-balanced. I like the fact dot in the "i" is at the Ascender line but it does not feel awkward.
I slightly italicized this font, and it is similar to Martell, but I like how the terminals differ in this. It is also a narrower font, but compliments well with the kerning. (I did not play with the kerning for this part of the assignment.)
Here are the sans serif fonts:
I love this font. Someone created the font to celebrate Jean-Luc Godard's birthday in 2010 and I am glad I get to use this. Once again, "i" is the stand-out letter in the font.
This is technically a handwriting font, but I chose it regardless as it is a little different and it abides by the sans-serif rule. If I actually have good handwriting, I would like to write this way.
This font is the most angular of all. It is wide, almost square-like, and in my opinion, most pixel-like font. This is the most playful font I found.
This is all 6 fonts on one page. Unfortunately bambi has no glyphs in its fonts, hence lack of parentheses around the font.
These are my three expressive words. I hope it conveys what it is trying to do.
