Crafted by hand and photographed in her apartment, take a look below at Lee’s completed typeface, followed by progress shots that show how it was created.
We spent some time talking with Anne Lee to find out more:
HW: Why flowers?
AL: I happened upon these flowers and couldn’t resist! I was faced with an abundance of raw material and knew I had to use it in some way.
HW: What was the most challenging part of creating this face?
AL: I got back to my studio and started sketching basic letterforms. Making lowercase letters seemed more economical, because there are similar shapes within the letters and I enjoyed playing with the ascenders and descenders. It was challenging to make sure all of the letters were approximately the same size. I started with a circle for size reference and went from there.
HW: How you expect to use it in the future?
AL: I’m brainstorming ways to make the alphabet more accessible. Making posters and prints is the next immediate step. Turning it into a free display typeface for others to use is another possibility.
