Bilbao custom font

Bilbao custom font - student project

I chose to base my custom font on the city of Bilbao. Using the original font of Work Sans in Bold I researched some old Basque posters and found a cool Gothic style that matched that of the city. Adding inward curves to the letters, sharp serifs, a triangular crossbar to the 'A' and adjusting the shape of the 'B' I ended up with a modern Gothic look. A mix of old and new, very much like the city of Bilbao.Bilbao custom font - image 1 - student projectBilbao custom font - image 2 - student project
