This is a font in progress called "Margaret" that I'm still designing (hence the incomplete alphabet). With this project, I wanted to design a font that was both warm and modern. While I enjoy modern design, I feel there can be a coldness and lack of a human element. I used Bodoni as an inspiration. This font was meant to have a more vintage feel, and to suit either masculine or feminine design styles depending on the use. The name “Margaret” just seemed right, and fit the personality.

Below are a few progress shots showing my work. So many details! I really respect the work type designers put into their fonts. I only just scratched the surface!
