Typecast Inspiration

Typecast is a tribute to my love of typography. I have fond memories of my early undergraduate graphic design classes and tracing typefaces. While it certainly would have been quicker to use the computer, my professors knew students would gain a greater appreciation for typeface design by drawing characters by hand. Later, I had an opportunity to design my own typefaces in advanced Typography classes.

Use Typecast repeatedly to customize your own projects. The possibilities are endless!
