Note to Self: A free handwritten typeface
1 year, 9 months ago 0

Note to self is a typeface I developed while during my graphic design undergraduate degree at OCAD. It is a typeface based on my handwriting and comes with a principal and companion typeface – Fifth Grade and Third Year.

Fifth Grade originated – yep you guessed it – in the fifth grade of elementary school when I needed to make my writing a little bit more presentable (I had a habit of writing everything in caps back in the day) for a poetry project. It has evolved quite a bit since then but the main characteristics of a small x-height and long ascenders and descenders remains intact.

Third Year originated in my third year of my college days where I fell in love with the aesthetics of a condensed all-caps face – specifically Trade Gothic condensed caps. I began incorporating it into my writing and notes as a subhead of shorts and haven’t looked back since.
